Michael Peter Smith

Red leaves of October turn November brown
Winter's always early in Chicago town
Whitecaps on Lake Michigan
Gray and moody sky
Runners in the park like ghosts of last July

Red leaves of October
Beautiful and wild
Blew down the street
I chanced to meet
A late October child
One more day of sunshine made the city smile
Rondi's birthday
Summer for awhile

Birds fly south together
Whispering on high
Underneath the branches someone's passing by
Hands in her pockets
Kicking up the leaves
Stories in her eyes and secrets up her sleeves

Red leaves of October
Beautiful and wild...

Wind is turning colder
Sky is getting dark
Promises of winter blow through Lincoln Park
I am standing in a doorway
Waiting out the rain
Remembering as if it was just yesterday

Red leaves of October
Beautiful and wild...
