Better not cry for spoken voice, flute and cello


The music was written to accompany a poem by my father
after the death of my mother.
If a narrator is available, the poem can be spoken
as in the recording attached:

Better not cry
for what has gone by:
the erosion of time.
the spilling of mind.
Far better remember
soft strokes of kindness,
moments of happiness,
Paling and fading.
The fine weft of living:
its intricate lace
patterns unravelling,
into the abyss.
Try to remember
the small subtleties
we’ve done and we’ve seen
in our time together.
