' "When daisies blush, and windflowers wet with dew…" Ebenezer Elliot (1781-1849)
This piece is based on this image of flowers, shy to express fully with words but cannot help blush. The overall tempo and mood may be freely interpreted by the performer. The use of microtones, grace notes, and glissandi depicts the characteristics of Korean traditional music. '
