{Au Revoir} Autumn

As winter draws ever closer, it's icy fingers are gripping the corners of each day a little tighter still. So let me indulge while I still may, in the memories of warmth and colour when those bright and hazy summer days slipped slowly into autumn's russet tones. 

While I still can bear to before the real pain of winter sets in, let me relive the beauty of fleeting autumn moments (captured at Tupare in New Plymouth over Easter).

And let me not dwell in the depths of winter's despair, but instead dream of Summer Again.
Lyrics by The Afters

I'm watching the green give into gold
As summer becomes winter's cold
Gravity begs for one final kiss
She drops it to him, as she gives in

Traces of light, linger around
As laces of white fall to the ground
The softest of sounds for the heaviest things
And the pain that it brings

As she falls I try to catch her
For one last touch of warmth from summer
As one thing leaves to becomes another again
I remember when

Don't remember the day, she started to fade
The ground felt a chill as she gave it away
A whisper - a sigh, for the time that she passed
But this winter won't last

As she falls I try to catch her
For one last touch of warmth from summer
As one thing leaves to becomes another again
I remember when
Oh to be with summer again

The days were warm and we wore them like skin
Now I feel the effects of autumn again

As she falls I try to catch her
For one last touch of warmth from summer
As one thing leaves to becomes another again
I remember when
Oh to be with summer again

I'm watching the green give in to gold
As summer becomes winters cold
