Travel song for spring: Morning Has Broken

Back in November and December we ran a series Songs of Travel where we featured our favorite travel songs. This morning with spring flowers blooming in a variety of places, even along I-70 where I saw dozens of daffodils in their yellow splendor just yesterday, and my mother is talking about the redbud trees blooming throughout the mountains of southeastern Kentucky, I’m reminded of Cat Steven’s (aka Yusef) “Morning has Broken.”

Here’s a video I found that captures the beauty of the flowering trees, roadsides and gardens, plus the birds that we can see for free. With birds busy migrating back to their summer homes this month and festivals honoring flowers, this ode to spring and the morning seemed fitting. Hopefully as you travel this week, you’re able to enjoy the blossoms and the singing. There’s a wonderful shot of children about halfway through.
