And it Smilers last complete song cycle five points which comprised the text were written in 1834 by the German poet Friedrich Rupert who had
lost two children. Strangely enough when Mahler began the cycle he was a bachelor by the time it was finished. He was married and had two children. His wife was unhappy with his preoccupation with such a tragic theme and she believed that he was tempting fate. As far as own children were concerned and her fears were confirmed in 1007 when their oldest daughter died. At the head of each song Mahler indicated the general mood usually one of the first song the sun will rise as brightly now is slow and sad. The second.
