sweet November comes

When sweet November comes

There’s a low rumble
Moving like a distant
Freighter
Coming down
A narrow track
There’s one way in
From the cold
There’s never a better time
To let go
Climb on
Aboard
Leave your worries
And the troubles
That build
Up
In a long day

You can stay on forever
Just always remember
The sweetness of a November
Sunday, when the
Air is so still
From a cold morning chill
And the rain it won’t fall
Till next Aprils spring thaw
Memories of home
Keep you going on?
And the bright
Sunlight
Thought the slats
Of this old
Boxcar
Serve as
An aperture
On my life’s
Journey
And
I’ll be finally home
When
There’s nowhere left
I didn’t go….

There’s one way in
From the cold
There’s never a better time
To let go
Climb on
Aboard
Leave your worries
And the troubles
That build
Up
In a long day
