"I Shot an Arrow..." for female voice and piano

This is a setting of Henry Wadsworth Longfellow’s 1845 poem on the theme of enduring friendship, The Arrow and the Song, which begins: 

          I shot an arrow into the air,

          It fell to earth, I knew not where;

          For, so swiftly it flew, the sight

          Could not follow it in its flight.
