For What Reason - Nov. 26, 2010



For What Reason

For what reason do my songs appear to dance with beauty
Among the red leaves tossed in autumn winds
If not for the sake of this love, I hold in my heart for thee
This fondness, which glows within

Full in your view, the loveliest apparitions fix speaking eyes
Upon the leaves dancing in song enamored of thee
A fine expression is heard in a rustling of whispered sighs
I smile in knowing, they speak to me

A splash of colors, yellow and orange begin to also hear
I watch them surrendering to dance the same
Tossed within this fondness they appear
To know and call your name

For what reason do my songs appear to dance with beauty
Among these leaves tossed in autumn winds
If not for the sake of this love, I hold in my heart for thee
Then they must dance because they can
