The Valley

Autumn time is getting closer
Soon green leaves will start to fade
Dripping rain they’ll start a-falling
Summer’s gone and past away

Children’s hopes are like green tree leaves
They soon fade and tumble down
Come to rest in that lonesome valley
Where they never again can be found

That lonesome valley’s name is sadness
Flowers there are coloured blue
Autumn leaves are coloured sorrow
There’s not many left to fall

Wind played rain will be the music
Played upon those falling leaves
Played deep within that frost white valley
Summer’s gone and passed away
