LITTLE ELEGY (2015) 
for voice and piano
poem by Elinor Wylie

premiere: April 28th, 2015 at SubCulture New York by Adriana Zabala (mezzo-soprano) and Gregg Kallor

poem: 
Without you
No rose can grow; 
No leaf be green
If never seen
Your sweetest face; 
No bird have grace
Or power to sing; 
Or anything
Be kind, or fair, 
And you nowhere.
