"Autumn Wind" (Song)

True! Autumn has just about quit. But here's a song for this failing season nonetheless. The first track off this quasi-autobiographical allegory/song-cycle.


Autumn -
Come autumn wind,
And blow the heat away
To distant shores.
Autumn -
Come autumn rain,
And rinse the streets
With cool baptismal pour.
Autumn -
Come autumn fruit,
And feed our mouths
With harvest sweet and gold.
Autumn -
Come autumn wind,
Prepare the south
For winter's pointed cold.
