Song Description

Honoring the changing cycle of summer to autumn

Story Behind the Song

We've often opened up for an Autumn Changes poetry reading at A Room of One's Own, and wrote this to honor that theme.


Pumpkin ripe on dying vine
Cold chill frosts the evening
Moon lies low in amber tones
How summer?s light is fading

Autumn changes slow me down
One more cycle closing
Garden treasures plucked and stored
Reveal the earth reposing

Chorus I
Autumn changes, changing me
I?m swept up in its circling
Cycle circling, turning
Cycle circling, turning

Scent of autumn fills my breath
A time for reflection
The hard-worked land needs her rest
She signals life?s completion

Regal earth parades her robes
Crimson at her feet
Rushing leaves roll rhythmic songs
Across the mother?s heart-beat

Chorus II
Autumn changes, changing me
The rhythm of the seasons
Cycle circling, turning
Cycle circling, turning

Instinctual migration
Birds drawn to southern climes
Know in spring birds will return
A mystery in due time

Chorus I

Quiet reflection
A change of direction
A time for contemplation
Quiet reflection
A change of direction
Embrace regeneration
Cycle circling, turning
Cycle circling, turning
