"Fine, Clear, Dazzling Morning" is the second song of Jeremy Gill's Whitman Portrait
. The song is for coloratura soprano and piano.
Fine, clear, dazzling morning, the sun an hour high, the air just tart enough. What a stamp in advance my whole day receives from the song of that meadow lark perch’d on a fence-stake twenty rods distant! Two or three liquid-simple notes, full of careless happiness and hope.
