Early edition, piano-vocal score, signed by Copland on the first page of music.

With lyrics by e. e. cummings: “In spite of ev’rything / which breathes and moves, Since Doom / (with white longest hands / neatening each crease) / will smooth entirely our minds / before leaving my room / I turn, and (stooping / through the morning) kiss / this pillow dear / where our heads lived and were.”
