Synopsis

No. 100¬†of 2015’s 100 Poems.

A setting of E. E. Cummings’ eponymous poem.

I choose to end the year’s 100 poems by setting¬†joys faces friends for my favorite instrumentation, an unaccompanied male/female pair.

The piece is dedicated to “the two apartments in which I lived with Cecelia Gray: Schenectady, NY and Parkchester, NY”.
