Thieving Autumn

"Thieving autumn steals the colour from the sky and paints the leaves in lavish shades of gold and red". - Lyrics, Thieving Autumn by Stoneygate.

Thieving autumn steals the colour from the sky

and paints the leaves in lavish shades of gold and red

Thieving autumn robs the hours from the days

She draws the heat away and sends a steady rain.

 

Just like her sister Winter

With her icy fingers

She strips the leaves from the trees with surprising ease

She stirs up whirlpools of leaves

Bends the trees on a whim                   

Catches dandelion umbrellas

And blows them away, like a kiss

Thieving autumn with her dancing eyes and hair

Feeds the birds with stolen berries red and sweet

Thieving Autumn hides the acorns in the lawn

And fills her cheeks with tasty treats and sumptuous feasts

Just like her sister Winter

With her icy fingers

She makes it freeze when she breathes, with the spell she weaves.

With a wave of her sleeve, she’s the queen of intrigue

Her mercurial moods darken the sky and cover the nights with 

mystery

 

Thieving Autumn shrouds the fields in morning mists

And plants the seeds for tiny fronds of frost to grow

Thieving autumn holds the golden sun to ransom

Steals his strength and conjures stormy winds to blow

 

Just like her sister Winter

With her icy fingers

She wants to hypnotise the world and send it to sleep

She breathes the coolest breeze

Sways the trees till they creak

Dances with leaves, she’ll do as she’ll please
