Always it behooves us

To remember once again

The wisdom in the silence

Our teacher the autumn rain

 

The stars shone like faraway eyes

Caressing the night her eternal gaze

Summer’s retreat is autumn’s rise

The yearning wisdom of future days

 

Days of giving the garden that feeds

Sacred is the clearing dawn

New ears to hear new eyes to see

This yearning wisdom of autumn’s song

 

Sunbeam waters

Witness anew

Shadows of yesterday

Confessing adieu

 

Let’s tend to the garden

Of things we once knew

In this season of changes

We yearn to renew

 

Always it behooves us

To remember once again

The wisdom in the silence

Our teacher the autumn rain

 

Forgotten are the simple things, like roots of evergreen woods

Woven back to earth beneath the golden sun

When night reveals a peaceful dawn, remains of nature’s song

 

The stars shone like faraway eyes

Caressing the night her eternal gaze

Summer’s retreat is autumn’s rise

The yearning wisdom of future days

 

Days of giving the garden that feeds

Sacred is the clearing dawn

New ears to hear new eyes to see

This yearning wisdom of autumn’s song
