lyrics

Feel the wind blowing and growing in coldness each day
The sun soon shall follow the flight of the swallow away
Bronzing of leaves and the sheaves replacing the green
Plants all a'dying, supplying the corn and the bean

Time for the reaping and keeping of all that He sees
Time for the sharing and caring for each others' needs

Warmth is behind us, confines us to darkening days
Nighttime will lengthen, and strengthen our love for our ways
Welcome, Dark Mother, we honour Your gifts of the earth
Only through crying and dying can there be rebirth

Time for the strong to live on for when warmth returns
Time full of plenty, and empty of hunger and thirst

Only through tomorrow's sorrows can there be new days
The soil is born, and the corn, and the rock and the glade
Plants that are dying are lying all strewn on the ground
Seeds all a'plenty are ready for land to be found

Time for reflection, inspection of what lies within
Time for repairing the wearing of all that has been

Feel the wind blowing and growing in coldness each day
The sun soon shall follow the flight of the swallow away
The sun soon shall follow the flight of the swallow away
The sun soon shall follow the flight of the swallow away
