Take my coffee in the morning were the first words I wrote for the beginning of Morning Song. This is a simple folk tune. I have a small west-facing balcony that looks westward and a clearing of trees the size of sticks. During the Summer months, I’d go out there very early so as to feel fresh air and before the sun became impenetrably hot. And that is how Morning Song was written. As the melody became more established over those Summer months, so too did the lyrics.
