Autumn winds bring wishes on their coat tails
like things we wish to know
they bring things that we are unsure of
and things that make us grow.
How swift these winds from Canada blow
down here in our southern pines
bringing with them whispers of things to be
like unsolved mysteries lingering in old book spines.
The winds say "I was never good at anything."
"I never promised fast nor slow."
"I just bring changes and freshness."
"I bring what you don't know."
And so these autumn winds bring wishes on their coat tails
Some you may want but never know
Oh you autumn winds you bring new things to me
things I've never known.
