Wind blows through the somber tree
And beauty is all around
Humming birds fly here to there
As leaves fall to the ground
Children play in flowers bloomed
The summer has left behind
Colors change to red and yellow
For it is turning to autumn time
Thunder claps across the sky
Marking the storm to come
Dark grey clouds moving in
Showing that summer is done
Showing that summer is done
A baby woodpecker pecks the tree
Looking for its home
A nice warm place for it to be
As birds sing a beautiful tone
People no longer line the streets
Jackets are all around
These are the things you can find
When autumn comes to town
