I happen to catch this Super Skirmish and am happy something came out! Ha It may not make total sense but it's more than what I had an hour ago! Likely needs tweaks!!

UPDATE: October 19, 2019: musicsongwriter (Nadia Cripps) composed music for this lyric and Valerie Cox lent us her vocals. Beautifully delivered ladies!! Thank you so much! Smile

Lyrics: 

BEGINNING OF THE HARVEST

Well the leaves are turning
I see patches of orange
I’m ready for changes
My hopes are soaring

People will gather
For just moments in time
Soon families will visit
And laugh while they dine

[ch]
It’s the beginning of the harvest
And to reap what we sow
After all the plowing
Where does the time go
It’s the beginning of the harvest
We can reconnect
Make the days count
As our lives intersect

And there’s farmer’s markets
With their homegrown food
They’re selling their hard work
Linking neighborhoods

The feasts, songs and dishes
Taking cues from the past
They survive because we
Don’t let the storms last

[ch]
It’s the beginning of the harvest
And to reap what we sow
After all the plowing
Where does the time go
It’s the beginning of the harvest
We can reconnect
Make the days count
As our lives intersect

[br]
Traditions take hold
When we share what we know
I like how celebrations make
All our hearts glow

Repeat ch

Absolutely gorgeous uplifting lyrics. They sing! I xmcan feel their musical rhythm and the atmosphere. I'm not sure I will come up with music but if you don't mind me trying I'd like to have a go.

Hi Kristi, I have music ideas for the verses and the chorus, working on the bridge at the moment. Will keep you posted.
