Stretching long, without goodbye
Weary from the summer's play
The rolling hills are losing green
But laughing to a cloud flecked sky
while catching autumn's leaves
Autumn days show quiet grace
A fading trace of yesterday...
We watch a sky yield a change of hue
Turning gray from shades of blue
But there is now a harvest moon
Dancing to a different tune
For, winter's coming soon
After trees have lost their hue
Let the wind bring seasons new
I'll smile upon the pillowed earth
that brings a sense of peace instead....
A winter spread of snowy mounds
A softer sound upon the ground
as snowflakes waltz around
Until the birds return again,
I'll watch the dance of green begin
I'll brush the blossoms off my head
then,... dance because it's spring !
