Van Buren County in Autumn

Van Buren County in Autumn:

Merry leaves prance happily clad in red and gold
In their Autumn splendor bundled 'gainst the cold
For year's end is nearing and with a simple dance
That echoes 'cross the county like whispers from the past

Lay your burdens down dear heart you've surely earned a rest
Listen to the melody find its rhythm in your chest
And in this time of stillness one can drop one's pen
There'll come a time tomorrow to take it up again

Firefly glows, trumpeting crows, and woodwind whippoorwills
Oh wondrous noise quiet symphony building in these hills
How beautiful our home is, it's ev'ry stone and stream
Lit by a wistful golden moon shining on a dream.
