TAGS: superskirmish, songskirmish, ss092421A, feast, the sun
WHAT: We will have a one hour skirmish to write to a prompt.*
HOST: @tjeff


The hot sun of summer
Slowly fades away
As the crisp leaves of autumn
Gently join the fray

Cooler nights make me smile
And I don't mind the still warm days
Fills up my soul
With a hopeful daze

The Autumn Sun
Summer's done
The Autumn Sun
Spend some time outside
Having fun
In The Autumn Sun
The Autumn Sun

When fall comes I remember
How short life can be
Important to live each day
With your heart set free

'Cause fall will turn to winter
The beginning and the end
The cycle continues
And it just won't bend


Please keep your comments respectful, honest, and constructive. Please focus on the song and not the demo.

Nice. Got a "cool and breezy" feel to it. I envy that you can do harmony recording in an hour.

I like this! The harmony chorus is straight out of the CSNY playbook without it sounding like you stole it from them. Very nice work for an hour!

This came out really cool! Solid lyricism. Those harmonies are perfect and the guitar is so clean! Well done

‘Sigh’ another beautiful Jeff song featuring the sun! So complete for a skirmish. Your harmonies are always so tight. Enjoyed my listen!

Whoa, I got chills from the harmony on the first chorus. Excellent work, but how am I going to get through this superskrimish if I'm out in the autumn sun?!?

There is magic in that autumn sun, isn't there? Lovely work (as usual) here and great message. "As the crisp leaves of autumn/Gently join the fray" and the final verse particularly stood out as strong lyrics.
