A cappella Publisher Desc. This work is based on the unpublished poem by American poet (Princeton, N.J.) Nick Wolf, on the death of his son. The poet writes, When your oldest child dies: a man of faith, a dear person, in the prime of life, you remember his joy: we sailed together on blue oceans (islands passed in glorious flower); we warmed ourselves by pot belly stoves. But here I am, weeding around his grave, and seeing clearly the fine times, and like lightning his death is final, my life is poisoned - he will not return. Others of no value are here. Why not at least an embrace, or a word?This a cappella work is scored for 6 voices, and performance time is 8 minutes.
