Autumn

(1908)

"Autumn" is the 60th song in Ives's song collection 114 Songs. The text may have been written by his wife Harmony, but there is no confirmation.

Autumn
by Charles Ives


Earth rests! Her work is done, her fields lie bare,
and 'ere the night of winter comes
to hush her song and close her tired eyes,
She turns her face for the sun to smile upon
and radiantly, radiantly, thro' Fall's bright glow,
he smiles and brings the Peace of God!
