Week day mornings are busier at our house hold. Weekends are much
relaxed but the most enjoyable mornings to cherish would be during holidays.
The scene below, was cptured by my daughter on a morning at Chittering Valley,
WA, Australia while on a farm stay. One could see the sheep grazing behind the
chalets on an autumn morning.
The first one was the 16th century British folk song “Early one morning” – which I
learnt at my Primary school back in Jaffna, Sri Lanka.
The first four lines of the song:
Early one morning,

One may query the choice of song taught in a Sub-Continental country. The fact

Below is the You -Tube link for the traditional song sung by Sarah Brightman .
The second song was sung by Louis Armstrong “What a wonderful world” in the
movie ‘Good morning Vietnam’. The song was originally recorded in the late
Nineteen Sixties and later it was featured in the Eighties in the movie.
