The last leaf had let go and drifted down to the brown grass,
The summer’s sun has set down to sleep in the west,
And now the gray of winter descends, bringing with it.
The silence of snowflakes gentling coloring the earth white,

The chilling breeze weaves its way through cracks in walls and windows,
Somewhere in the hills where the wild run wild,

The logs in the fire crackle and pop, embers sweep upwards through the chimney,
Warm apple cider and shining eyes in the candlelight bring to close this evening,
And summer and winter part ways…
