Additional Info: Circa early 2000s.  One of Margaret’s last compositions, this beautiful piece was included as part of an unfinished suite based on the Carolinas, where Margaret lived with her family for most of her adult life.  Comparing the manuscripts from previous compositions, one can tell from her notation and handwriting that she was in the decline of her life.  She passed before this collection was completed or published.  This piece is reminiscent of a composition from the same period, Song of the Bird.
