and black cats are seen,
the moon laughs and whispers,

The Autumn Leaves

Since you went away the days grow long
And soon I'll hear old winter's song
But I miss you most of all, my darling
When autumn leaves start to fall.

a tie to the past, a road to the future,
the key to sanity in a totally insane world.

but no matter where we go,

Favorite Schoolmasters

Earth and sky,
woods and fields,
lakes and rivers,
the mountain and the sea,
are excellent schoolmasters,
and teach some of us more
than we could ever learn from books.

You and Me

And when one of us is gone
And one of us is left to carry on
Then our memories will have to do
Our memories alone will see us through
Think about the days of me and you
You and me against the world

sometimes it's good, sometimes it's bad,
and there's not much you can do but carry an umbrella.

if the simplest things in nature
have a message that you understand,

The Arrival of October

Bittersweet October.
The mellow, messy, leaf-kicking, perfect pause
between the opposing miseries of summer and winter.
