rain in the wind
starts spreading the news
autumn’s here                                                                  Bill

            no business
            like raking leaves                                                 Michael

some enchanted evening
smoke
gets in your eyes                                                              Bill

climbing
every mountain
aspen yellow                                                                     Michael

            sunrise, sunset
            closer each day                                                     Bill

somewhere, lost in the leaf pile,
       memories
              of summer love                                                  Michael
