"The Autumn Wind"

       
  1. With whistle and shout,
The wind hurried out
And called to the leaves on the trees:
"Come down from the bough,
I'll dance with you now,
And whirl you as fast as you please!"
 
       
 
2.
The wind sang aloud
Where birds in a crowd
Were ling'ring before their long flight;
"Away, little friends,
Till wintertime ends;
There may be a snowman tonight."
 
       
 
3.
The wind gave a roar,
And shook the house door.
"I hear you!" the good mother said:
"Bring cold or bring storm,
My children are warm,
Tucked under thick blankets in bed!"
