An autumnal tune. A seasonal smash hit--right up there with "Monster Mash."


American Frost, Robert Frost

Halloween’s come near &
shaken loose masks & guises.
Colors bleeding clear,
rattle off old surprises.
& the fuse now tucks itself in
& the fuse now tucks itself into the frozen Earth.

Left behind for dead &
tossed aside for lead & labor.
Now Winter’s falling fast &
fat upon downed leaves &
fat upon downed leaves &
heavy on the trees &

Frost is in the air &
settled on grass & houses.
Children warm their hearts,
buoyed by kitchen circumstances.
Charmed by innocent romances &
warmed by fire dancing hearths &
the feel of woolen feet.

Bury my heart cradle & crib.
Bury my head ladle & rib. [Chorus]
Bury me hope in open sky.
Holy laughter ‘til the day I die.

Keep your future health in amber frozen.
Keep your hired hands worn clean.
Keep your tired eyes on the future-present.
Keep the curried locks picked free.
