"Heidenroslein" by Franz Schubert

Really quick song, because my mind feels like it has melted from all the writing I've done this evening. This song is such a cute strophic number, with one melodic line being repeated 3 times. The verses are 2 periods, the first with a HC, followed by a PAC. The second is assymetric, with a HC, followed by a deceptive cadence, then a PAC. The "chorus" is simply a phrase, with a HC that is pulled out by ritardando, then the tempo returns for the consequent phrase and PAC. Really simple song, very cute. My life hurts...
