"When the sun turns traitor cold"

Urge For Going


"I awoke today and found the frost perched on the town
It hovered in a frozen sky, then it gobbled summer down
When the sun turns traitor cold 
and all the trees stand shivering in a naked row
I get the urge for going but I never seem to go


I get the urge for going
When the meadow grass is turning brown
Summertime is falling down and winter is closing in"
Joni Mitchell

(If you view this in a Reader, you may need to go to actual blog to hear Joni's song…)
