Morning has broken!

Morning Has Broken

Morning Has Broken

Stillness settles in upon my soul
Each dewy dawn before the world awakes,
From distant towns and leas I hear the wave
of waking birdsong welcoming the sun,
Washing near as night skies fade away,
The nightingale departs, his nocturne ends.
Morning!

    “Morning Has Broken” is one of my favorite hymns. We used to see it on Easter morning. I loved your line: “the wave | of waking birdsong welcoming the sun.” Dessert for the ears. πŸ™‚
