Product details

The title "a leaf falls" is taken from the e.e. cummings poem with the first line "l(a." I once set that poem to music in a piece for men's choir. It reads "l (a leaf falls) oneliness." Though I've never really lived in a place with an autumn, I nevertheless feel a sense of nostalgia for the coming of autumn, the leaves turning bright oranges and reds, and is it a sense of emptiness when the leaves fall? Eugene Carchesio captured something like this sense beautifully in his "Dead leaves of Tokyo" series. I enjoy raking the leaves in my backyard, it's a kind of meditation. And who doesn't love jumping into a pile of leaves?
