One Morning is a brief piano work celebrating the joy found in the energy of a new day. The music begins with a simple figuration, marked "Slowly, pensively." As the music descends in register, it gathers momentum, leading to a rhythmic, energetic development. The basic four-note idea which opened the work returns in many guises throughout: lyrical, energetic, and playful.
