Autumn Leaves

Summer’s slowly fading
Leaves are turning brown
Flying with the wind
Until they all fall down

Shining in a golden light
Lies the landscape still
And a sparkling river
Is dancing with a mill

While all of us are moving
Nature stops once more
Holds her breath for summer
The time she most adore

The old trees out there oh summer
Will wait for your return
Will stay out there in silence
Until they feel your burn

For all of us who live here
We feel how times pass by
See the changing colors
In the autumn sky

Soon winter will be coming
Covering the land in snow
But still the hills keep sparkling
In the suns everwaming glow
