Sheet Music: Score
...after a while only the green of the grass is left : for solo flute / Ben Hoadley.
by Ben Hoadley (2007)
This short work for solo flute was written in 2007 and is dedicated to my Grandmother, Mary Kingma (1917 - 2005). It was inspired by (but is not necessarily a direct depiction of) part of a poem that she wrote (published by New Zealand Art Press in the anthology New Beginnings in 1986), the last line of which I have used as the title.
They are waiting for me, the sparrows.
And so I throw the crumbs and watch.
So busy, so quick, so hungry.
After a while only the green of the grass is left.
