This 1905 composition begins with a slow melody carried by rolling octave chords in the right hand, followed by a slow melody carried by single notes in the left hand with harmony in the right hand. After a return to the first melody comes a faster section of broken chords in the right hand with the melody at the bottom of the chords, followed by a return to the original slow melody. It is a tender expression that is fairly easy to play.
The 8 1/2 by 11 inch good-quality paper is stiff enough not to droop while sight-reading. The middle loose page can be easily turned while playing the piece.
