I wasn't sure if this question was more appropriate to ask in Linguistics SE or English language and Usage SE. Feel free to move it.

comment Is “tomorrow” as any specific day in the future a proper usage of the word?
@tchrist I see, you are saying to direct the student to use morrow rather than to-morrow when needing to refer to future days that are not the day after today--"the morrow of (any particular day)." That might just work!

I was aware of the definition referring to the ambiguous future. I don't think it is confusing used that way. But, is it proper to use it of any specific day in the future other than the day after tomorrow.

@tchrist I thought of this poem also; however, the repetition itself creates a context in which consecutive Tomorrows are understood as tomorrow's tomorrow.
