[10] material suggests that HC here may have been seeking to express the
two extremes of night sounds, the disturbing and the comforting. Such
contrarities are found often among his later works: e.g., Chiaroscuro,
The Tender and the Wild, High Color and Deep Color, Sound Sharp
and Dance Smooth.
11 The Dinosaur's Skirt Dance [for piano]
Molto allegro
 D ca 1911. Large noteheads, many without stems, suggest a possible
earlier dating for this piece; but the dedication ("to Mr. M[...]"; HC
in 1963 could not decipher his writing) and the title argue otherwise.
 M Pencil sketch, primitive and incomplete in 17m on pi of 4, followed
by no. 14 with no. 75 added much later
 C SRC comments that HC used to speak of having written many of his
early piano pieces such as this (mentioned specifically) for games and
skits of his childhood friends of both sexes.
12 Funeral March [for piano]
Adagio
 D ca 1911
 M Pencil sketch incomplete in 19m on Ip
 C Measure 16 completes the theme, after which the piece fades away.
Most measures have only a melodic line, and some note stems are miss-
ing. "Bells" written between the staves suggests the import of a few
full chords in the brief middle section.
13 [Lento in D major for piano]
Lento quasi Andantino
 D ca 1911
 M Pencil sketch incomplete in 8m on the verso of no. 12
 C An asterisk at the end of the tempo mark refers to a footnote explain-
ing "Slower than Andante."
14 March [for piano]
[No tempo mark]
 D ca 1911
 M Pencil sketch, very meager, many notes without stems, one "melodic
line" complete in 71m, only in half and quarter notes and with no
accompaniment; on p2-4: following no. 11
