“Autumn’s here twilight’s falling all across the land,
Summer’s passing daylight’s fading the wheel turns again.
Will you still love me?

When winter comes wild winds raging blowing from the north,
Night is reigning the icy queen calls a blizzard forth.
Will you still love me?

Spring brings changes, wild ones winged flying from southern climes,
Dawning day brights bright array to the newborn time.
Will you still love me?

Summer ripens life runs rampant growing towards the sun,
Daylight’s reign celebrates when the work is done.
Will you still love me?

All things change, all things pass, by the Lady’s hand,
I will meet with you again in the Summerland.
Will you still love me?
will you still love me?”
