"Crooning melancholy strains, Autumn bids adieu to Summer."
Near August’s end, she starts to saunter in.
The time has come when I will start to long
for June’s sweet tune I whistled on a whim,
for Autumn croons a melancholy song.
While creeping in, she steals light from the sky.
It’s nature’s way. She’s doing nothing wrong!
She rustles through the treetops and I sigh
as Autumn croons a melancholy song.
She blazes brightly for a while but soon,
she turns to frost and rushes then headlong
to winter’s freeze beneath a harvest moon.
Yes, Autumn croons a melancholy song.
Beautiful sadness touches me and deep.
The sadness makes me wish I could belong
again in summer memories I keep
when Autumn croons a melancholy song.
