though this indian summer is all warm winds
and pleasant colored leaves,
to me this rustic land is known
and i am not deceived

Winter she'll float on down
to this my ol' hometown

yeah, she'll float on down

wearing her ivory gown
muffling every living sound
knocking apple branches down
an' biting the tail of every hound

yes, float on down she will:

icing the pigs' swill
embracing dale and hill
painting every landscape white and still

an' the ol' trapper's milk will spill,
for the last time it will

for brutal months we're bound
and though i'd like to skip this town,
i reckon i'll be found
here and there around

when winter she float on down!

"Any intelligent fool can make things bigger, more complicated, and more violent. It takes a lot of courage... and a touch of brilliance to move things in the other direction."

- Albert Einstein

Lot of rain there, right?
Very nice imagery of the coming cold, you pessamist! Nicely arranged to feel the pleasentry of fall still holding hopes of warmth-
and actually the visuals of cold, stark winter aren't bad either. Nicely done. Makes me want to see what you'll do with spring!
