The sunlight silhouetting an amazing canopy Grass more green than any time all the year Shadows now larger than summer's smallness Makes you wonder as you watch when it appears Like fingers crossed symbols of luck they bring The autumn season will take longer to pass How the weathered leaves rattle in the breeze The ever shifting clouds curving across the sky The emblem that I love snapping to attention Then resting at ease in the calm afternoon Trained to all the mornings glowing valleys Glory to the life I own in my west meadows Tied to all our country's strong moorings A fabric of love and devotion to family will I sing A fierce determination towards freedom Life hanging desperately at times by a thread I shall seek no further and ask no more I shall not cower in the shadows that hide me I shall not attempt to overcome all the tears Because if I do I have to commit to it So, I can’t stand back any longer in fear Because fear is not something I contrive I don’t recognize fear so what keeps me alive What possible example does fear represent How it belongs to anything I ever thought about Possibilities created against guarantees I seriously and most substantially disagree But getting back to that sunset in my meadow The grass is really, really getting green
