I was given this 'dour" little melody as an exercise in arrangement.
Everything I tried sounded funereal until I developed the strong 'cello line which I think really lifts the piece.
The idea for the middle section was that the singer of this tune shifts from happy to obsessive about his little love hence the strange (for me) harmonies as he descends into madness.

She is warm was inspired by scenes from Shakespeare's Winter Tale.
King Leontes believes he has caused the death of his wife some sixteen years earlier.
After finally redeeming himself he is told there has been a statue made of the late queen.
The statue "magically" comes to life and at first afraid he touches its hand and exclaims "Oh, she is warm".
