It's the Widow now that owns that angry plow
The fallow field that will yield no more

And from the pasture the fence it is leaning away
Like some great cat on the prowl

As the nights grow long
As many petaled kiss I place upon her brow

Here the sprightly Chickadee
In passing greet each other as if old, old friends
It is their own they will lend
The days grow short
The kettle sings its tortured song
Oh, my lady, lady I am loving you now
And though all these things will change
As green to gold, and gold to brown
And in their falling, make no sound
Oh my lady

To buy my lady a long and flowing gown
We're off to the county fair
And I will lace it in her hair
