Simon and Garfunkle Knew About Fall

By
Education & Training with House Proud Ottawa-Ontario-Canada

Today I looked out the window and saw that my favourite maple tree had lost almost all of its leaves overnight (thanks in no little part to Sandy).  I guess the leaves were ready to fall but the wind took the timing out of the hands of the tree and into the hands of a storm.  It made me think of a song I knew a long time agoe.  Here are the Simon and Garfunkle lyrics from their song "Leaves that are Green".  

 

 

 

 

I threw a pebble in a brook
And watched the ripples run away
And they never made a sound.
And the leaves that are green turned to brown,
And they wither with the wind,
And they crumble in your hand.

Gail. Depends upon the wind direction. Our neighbours had 28 bags of leaves put out today for recycling.

Patricia. In a few weeks our world in Ottawa will be white so I especially love the fall for the colours.

Valerie, I have always loved good harmonies, and Simon and Garfunkle are among my favourite...

Chris: 

When you see Garfunkle harmonize it looks like an angel coming in on wings of musical notes.
