And summertime is falling down and winter’s closing in – Watercolour with charcoal highlights in a Watercolour Moleskine

Driving home on Sunday, I saw this landscape of trees in a field. The setting sun was magnificent and it made the scene almost look like a summer’s evening -despite the very cold temperatures. It reminded me of a song from long ago:

I awoke today and found the frost perched on the town
It hovered in a frozen sky and it gobbled summer down
When the sun turns traitor cold
And all the trees are shivering in a naked row
I get the urge for going but I never seem to go

I get the urge for going, when the meadow grass is turning brown
and summertime is falling down and winter’s closing in

“The Urge for going” as sung by Joni Mitchell
