There's a hush upon the prairie
There's a blue haze on the hills
The world is changing color
And adding autumn frills.

The yellows come where green has been
The reds are crowding in
Nature's made a checker-board
Of brown slopes shading in.

From vista unto vista
From the skyline to the hills
Mother Gea's gaily dressed
It's a rythmic song she sings.

The sunlight hides in hollows
Where purple glories lie
The birds rising above us
Have a deep exulting cry.

Theirs is a cry of 'Home again'
And I with mingled tears
Of peace and happiness in my heart know
I am home this year.
