 D 1950. The composer's account (from the inside cover of the published
edition):
One sunny Sunday morning in the Catskills I got up early and felt like
writing a song?so I looked into the volume of lyric poems by Dora
Hagemeyer . . . and almost at once found the Song for a Tree, which
seemed to suit the morning, the mood, and the mountains. As I wrote
it turned into a choral piece, which was complete in sketch by noon.
During the afternoon it was revised and copied and by evening was
packaged, ready to go to the publisher early the following day. So it
is the result of a fresh, gay day in the wooded hills, with no intrusion
of complications.
