Good Morning

(Mark McAdam)
September 10, 2016

Featuring the whistling of Eric Gilliland

Good morning, my friend              
This signals the end of the long lost wandering out in the darkest of nights
The end of the one-eyed sleeping
The end of the watch we were keeping for so long

So let’s stoke up the fire
We can pause to admire how the bedside table puts all that we need within reach
Our sentences overlapping
The sound of the one hand clapping is gone
So long

It’s a good, good morning
A good, good morning
It’s a good, good morning
And nothing is wrong
 
Go easy, my friend
Here’s a toast to the end of the restless wondering how to begin
We can laugh about the woods that used to be in
Where even the sky seemed shady somehow
 
Now let’s lay in the light
And speak well of the night
We can guess at the meaning of signs in a crossword game
The object is always nearer than it seems in the sideview mirror

It’s a good, good morning
A good, good morning
It’s a good, good morning and nothing is wrong, nothing is wrong

And these minutes seem like ours…

Good morning my friend
This signals the end
Of the long, dark winter
