    Autumn Contentment

    A hard day's work has just been done
    The harvest day in Autumn's sun
    The corn is cut and lays in stacks
    Their whiskered head all put in sacks


    With apples picked off orchard's trees
    And honey salvaged from the bees
    There's mushrooms picked from out the woods
    Our baskets bulge with Autumn's goods


    I wipe the sweat from off my brow
    Relieved the day is over now
    And as the sun begins to gloam
    I start to make my way back home


    I put my tools upon my pack
    And set off down the narrow track
    Between the rows of fading trees
    Now painted with their golden leaves


    With all the work, my legs still ache
    And long the path that I must take
    In balmy air, I take it slow
    Whilst picking blackberries as I go


    And soon I reach the garden gate
    I hope that I am not too late
    Although I've worked hard all day long
    The thought of tea has kept me strong


    The homely door is opened wide
    A welcome sight I see inside
    These faces with their welcome smiles
    It's worth the work and all the miles


    And as I look around I'm sure
    The one thing that I'm working for
    It's all those standing close to me
    Contentment is my family
