“The scarcity of rhinos” on the television

SATB Chorus

Approx. 5 minutes

2004

Based on a poem from Ursula K. Le Guin’s book Sixty Odd.Ursula K. Le Guin’s poem is not so much about Rhinoceroses, but is for me a tale of the risks of missing something important when you’re distracted by flashier things in life.

"O awkward and shortsighted and short-lived rhinoceros,
bearing the living horn, the one true one!
Where?"
