Blowing Winter In

Lyrics and melody © 1999 by Catherine Faber
Arrangement © 1999 by Arlene "Callie" Hills

Now the summertime has faded and the evening yields to night.
You must learn to love the darkness as you once embraced the light,
For the tale of spring's returning's just a fantasy you spin
While the wind that blew the autumn out blows the winter in.

Now the days are pale and furtive and the sullen cats complain
The trees are thin and naked and they shiver in the rain,
The sun so weak you cannot feel his hand upon your skin
While the wind that blew the autumn out blows the winter in.

When all the hope you've cherished and all the strength you've grown,
Are a candleflame that flickers in the drafty night alone,
Is the sky your only blanket? Are the stars your only kin?
While the wind that blew the autumn out blows the winter in.

You can always call me over, we can watch the night's advance.
We can teach the teapot peppermint and the scrabble tiles to dance,
We can wrap the night in ribbons of voice and mandolin,
While the wind that blew the autumn out blows the winter in.

Like a thousand vivid photos lie the rivers you have run,
The horses you have ridden, the mountains splashed with sun.
Call the campfire from the candle; call the ocean from a shell
Till the wind that blew the autumn out blows winter out as well.
