THE AUTUMN WIND – Steve Sabol

  • The Autumn wind is a pirate
    Blustering in from sea
    With a rollicking song he sweeps along
    Swaggering boisterously.
    His face is weatherbeaten
    He wears a hooded sash
    With a silver hat about his head
    And a bristling black mustache.
    He growls as he storms the country
    A villain big and bold
    And the trees all shake and quiver and quake
    As he robs them of their gold.
    The Autumn wind is a Raider Pillaging just for fun
    He’ll knock you ’round and upside down
    And laugh when he’s conquered and won.

“I Am the Autumnal Sun” – Henry David Thoreau

  • Sometimes a mortal feels in himself Nature
    — not his Father but his Mother stirs
    within him, and he becomes immortal with her
    immortality. From time to time she claims
    kindredship with us, and some globule
    from her veins steals up into our own.I am the autumnal sun,
    With autumn gales my race is run;
    When will the hazel put forth its flowers,
    Or the grape ripen under my bowers?
    When will the harvest or the hunter’s moon
    Turn my midnight into mid-noon?
    I am all sere and yellow,
    And to my core mellow.
    The mast is dropping within my woods,
    The winter is lurking within my moods,
    And the rustling of the withered leaf
    Is the constant music of my grief…
