Indian Summer

Indian Summer! Indian Summer!
‘Tis Indian Summer to-day.
There’s a peaceful calm o’er the stilly world
For the sunrise banners have all been furled.
There’s a silent hush in the forest vast
And a green leaf sways, ’tis the very last.
And the sky is blue, just a stretching way;
‘Tis Indian Summer again to-day.

Indian Summer! Indian Summer!
‘Tis Indian Summer I know.
‘Tis the hunter’s noon and a dreamy haze
O’er hangs the hours of halcyon days.
The meadows lie in a lazy sleep
And the world is wrapped in a silence deep;
Just a blue sky where no breezes blow.
‘Tis Indian Summer again, I know.

– Circa 1928
