Lyrics: 

Take Me Across Earth's Great Divide

Twilight creeps a little closer
With each passing day
The kiss of summer still lingers
As Autumn shows it's face

The leaves are changing color
Soon to fall and die
The geese are flying South
I'd like to catch a ride

Take me across Earth's great divide
Where Spring is in swing
With a fresh new start
Take me across Earth's great divide
Embracing a season that warms my heart

Fall has it's own moments
But it has a downside
Dark cold days grow closer
Winter won't be denied

Take me across Earth's great divide
Where Spring is in swing
With a fresh new start
Take me across Earth's great divide
Embracing a season that warms my heart

A!

Great Write! Love the emotional power of the seasons and how one's own perspective can be so similar to another's or different, yet so strong at striking a chord - no pun intended - at so many peoples experience and seasonal associations!

This will be a great song!

"The geese are flying South/I'd like to catch a ride" - I love those lines! Wonderful take on the prompt with yearning for the warmer days already. I like your use of "Earth's great divide". It's true - we all do seem to align with different seasons. I'm all about the cooler Temps, but not everyone feels the same!

Wow that image of geese flying overhead …that sums up the autumn’s approaching scenery change just right. Lovely vivid writing Andrea.

Really nice use of seasons and imagery to get your point across. Nicely written lyrics, particularly for a skirmish.

This is very nice, I've done a few 'seasons' lyrics over the years, lots of easy imagery to find in this subject and you do it very well here.
