Wait for a while
Check it again
Circle around
Where have we been
All this time?

The weight of my step
November leaves
Move with a sound
Under my feet
Wherever I go

You could ask me inside for the winter
I would breathe just right on the ember

Think of the past
Think of the storm
The people dug in
What was it for?
Was that a dream?

You could ask me inside for the winter
I would breathe just right on the ember
I would carry the light to our chamber
You could carry the light to remember

Notes
Thanksgiving is behind us. The fall was stubborn to reveal itself, and all too soon it is giving way to winter. It is already Cyber Monday, for goodness sake. If you inhabit a latitude close to mine, your thoughts are surely on the colder days and nights ahead, and how you might warm them up.

This is a cozy song. I’m singing about bringing the warmth and light with us as we venture forth into the new season. I’ve written variations on it for previous winters. I imagine I will always find another way to sing this kind of song. I love the transitions between seasons. They often sound wistful on my guitar.

~M.E.
