Gone are the grasses so lush and green.
Their roots dive deep searching far below.
As flaking gold letting each tree go.
I leave this place with soul disheartened.
Whispering Autumn speaking in an ear.
Rustle heartstrings beneath falling tears.
I long for home.
Now surrounded by this shifting grief.
I dare not go but know I can never stay.
Even change cannot stop this perpetual decay.
Please, please take me away.
