"The Rosebud" ~ an offering for Christmas

Alright, Dow has had his little present in my usual meddling fashion, and in two flavours even, and thanks to swisspiper another shade on it, though the original in E Phrygian Dominant is still the easier for me on the whistle and flute. This simple little ditty just was there and it is the promised Christmas gift for the rest of you, just good old fashioned D Major, and with the hopes that maybe a few of you will like it. I considered some awful names for it, Christmasy things and rude asides, and then I remembered "Citizen Kane". I hope this conveys some of the kick of sliding down snow pack by whatever means, the exhileration of it, the childlike joy, and it is an offer with the promise of Spring, a wild rosebud, some rugosa shrub type rose, the kind that makes great tea and great homemade wine and has that old fashioned heady aroma…

Cheers! ~ ceolachan

Dow is the one that keeps pusing me to use a high c to tickle the ire of the bow inspired ~ but come on folks, it’s not that much of a stretch…
So, that little bit missed for the first beat of the first bar for the second ending:
