Natalie Merchant Poetry Covers

I don't think this is a dumb idea.
Natalie Merchant released her first solo album in nine years this week, a collection of tunes adapted from 19th to 20th century poetry, both American and British, about childhood according to Gather News. Leave Your Sleep was released on Tuesday via Nonsuch Records, and is two discs worth of musical adaptations. The poets “covered” include Robert Louis Stevenson, Robert Graves, Ogden Nash and Christina Rossetti.
