The Falling Leaves

Around our five acre woods and at my Mom's this week evidence of fall is in the beauty of the changing leaves......
"The falling leaves drift by my window, the falling leaves.....
of red....
 and gold.
I see your lips, the summer kisses
The sunburned hands I used to hold
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.
Autumn Leaves, English lyrics (1947) by Johnny Mercer
Linking to: Rural Thursday, Thursday Theme Song, and Skywatch.
