The words of this gentle love song are by Lesotho poet and teacher, Kemuel Edward Ntsane (1920-1983), known for his blend of the religious, traditional, and western in modern Sesotho poetry. Moerane adapts Ntsane’s words to create a musical setting that is deceptively simple and syllabic at first, until a persistent syncopated rhythm emphasising the 2nd beat together with frequent chromatic harmonies, begin to match the strong feelings expressed in the poem.
