Autumn is in the garden
In every nook and rill
And autumn is in the brooding cloud
Above the ragged hill

Autumn is in the valley, dear
River of ruddy leaf
Whispers beneath the wanderer
In rustling rainbow sheaf

Autumn is in the brook, child
Autumn is in the field
And autumn is the orchard where
We garner summer’s yield

Autumn is in your eyes, love
Autumn is in your kiss
And autumn is in the aching teardrop
As we reminisce
