More Bus Music (Lullaby, Phase III)

Our Kay responded favorably to the excerpt I sent her, so cooing seems indicated; the setting for yet more of the text came to me while in a bus a-rolling this fair morning. Over the past few days, I've discarded three sketches for accompaniment so far; which I am taking to mean that I should just concentrate on the vocal line. Get that done, and I shall discover the accompaniment.

If I'm having difficulty writing a certain thing, experience teaches me not to 'force' it; work on something else meanwhile, and the other will arrive in its own time.

You're absolutely right - never 'force' anything. Let it gestate, and it will come.
