what a beautiful morning!

When I was a student at Brigham Young University, I lived in a house with several young men. My roommate, Bruce, was the most optimistic person I have ever known. We never once heard him say anything negative about any person or any circumstance, and it was impossible not to feel buoyed up in his presence. His good cheer flowed from an abiding trust in the Savior and in His gospel.
One cold, wintry day, another friend of mine, Tom, was walking across the university campus. It was only 7:00 in the morning, and the campus was deserted and dark. Heavy snow was falling, with a brisk wind. “What miserable weather,” Tom thought. He walked farther, and out in the darkness and snow, he heard someone singing.
Sure enough, through the driving snow came our ever-optimistic friend, Bruce. With his arms outstretched to the sky, he was singing a number from the Broadway musical Oklahoma: “Oh, what a beautiful morning! Oh, what a beautiful day! I’ve got a beautiful feeling, everything’s going my way” (see Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein II, “Oh, What a Beautiful Mornin’” [1943]).

想像したとおりに,ひどい吹雪の中から永遠の楽天家ブルースの姿が見えました。両手を空に向かって広げ,ブロードウェイ・ミュージカルの「オクラホマ」を歌っていました。「ああ,何て美しい朝なんだ ああ,何て素晴らしい日なんだろう 気分はすこぶる爽快だ 全てが僕の思いのままさ」(リチャード・ロジャーズとオスカー・ハマーステイン・2世,「美しい朝」〔1943年〕。
