Adolf Heyduk (6 June 1835 – 6 February 1923) was a distinguished Czech poet and writer. Many of his poems were later set to music by Antonín Dvořák. The best known and most widely performed is the poignant and tender Songs My Mother Taught Me with its hauntingly exquisite setting, included in the repertoire of many renowned instrumentalists and vocalists.
