From the album AS I SEE IT NOW (1974)


Autumn flower rhyme filtered through my mind
But I wouldn't begin to explain without help from a song
And the moon and the sun


Sometimes the wind that blows through life
Can stir up the darkness and pain
Oh I've been blown to the right and the left of the light
It's the wind but I still feel to blame


The Autumn Lady is laying now on a mountain of feathers and down, oh
She spent all her nights under raspberry lights
And her days, wrote her days into songs


Why has the maple gone brown on me
Has the falling already begun
I lay in the grass in the fields of the past
Since you're gone with the moon and the sun




A live version recorded in 1975 can also be found on the CD ON AIR
