The Lyrics

The fall has hit hard the Shrieking Sixties, and the sailing season is definitely over. But the nights are getting longer, and it is time to let my inner geek loose in form of star-gazing and astronomy. I wrote this song on a last week real life experience - the beach I used to frequent last Summer was so quiet and dormant, but as there is little to speak of light pollution, the stars shine incredibly bright.
All the boats are up
and the seas are grey
Autumn winds are blowing
on force nine today
Nights are getting longer
and the days decay
Southern Finland dreaming
on a windy Autumn day

I wandered to a beach
in the middle of night
It's all calm around
and stars are shining bright
The quietness welcomed me
to gaze the stars, their light
Southern Finland dreaming
on a starry Autumn night

All the boats are up
and the seas are grey
Autumn winds are blowing
on force nine today
Nights are getting longer
and the days decay
Southern Finland dreaming
on a windy Autumn day

Very lovely Susan! I lived for a short time in Kern County in California, and the stars were breathtaking there - not a lot of light around in the desert. So I can relate to this.

Atmospheric. Early autumn is my favorite time of year. Late autumn, well ... With respect, this piece is a little insubstantial so I think some 4s are fair.
