This choral piece for SATB and piano set to a poem by Henry Berne.
"There is always surprise in the beauty of the forest morning.
I am at home under the great trees.
I look down at the stream, as it curves,
Even crows, notorious for their dissatisfaction, are welcome this morn ing.
Each leaf, each tree, poplar and oak, white blazing sycamore,
These are elements of healing, elements of prayer
On the lake geese sail in quiet formation
