Gone from all sight are the autumn leaves
We hear the wind, it attacks the eaves
The ice does crackle across each lawn
A small sparrow chirps, move on, it’s dawn.
The clouds are laden in shadowed sky
Let’s pray this storm quickly passes by
It’s the time of year the branches break
While plants that sleep have too much at stake
Tis the moment all must carry on
Since we have spring to depend upon !
