|As I came down for breakfast on Sunday morning, November 3, 2013, the words printed in the right-hand column came into my head and I put them down on my Android tablet as I ate my breakfast. As I drove to church, a possible tune (based on a traditional melody) came into my head and after lunch I began working on fitting words and music together.
I recorded the whole compositional process since I thought it might be interesting to show this at work.

Tune adapted from Long Lamkin (traditional folk ballad)
O Rose my sweet Rose
Queen of flowers most regal
Fair Mother of all things
Skyclad your raiment
By the side of this river
