Even though I have a very busy day ahead, with only a handful of weeks left in the semester, with miles to go before I sleep, the proprieties must be observed, most of all the morning walk. It’s school vacation week here, so there is a certain hush. Reflecting on what it was like, I remembered this old song from Greg Brown, which many others have covered.
Oooo-ee, ain’t the mornin’ light pretty,
When the dew is still heavy, so bright and early.
My home on the range; it’s a one-horse town,
And i”s alright with me.
It is worth listening to the gentle melody, the relaxed accompaniment, and sweet harmonies. But wherever you are, don’t miss an opportunity to see what’s sweetly emerging from the environs.
