When autumn’s somber shadow grows,
Cross desiccated leaves, it knows
The tilting of the earth has wrought;
Sun parallels horizon taut.

When vestiges of summer fade,
When festive harvest plans are made,
When souls crouch near a hearth that’s hot;
Sun parallels horizon taut.

When tantalizing baked smells waft,
When thresholds battle fall’s cold draft,
When house pets claim their cozy spot;
Sun parallels horizon taut.

When autumn’s somber shadow grows;
Sun parallels horizon taut.
