#anfomhar – Twitter Project – An Autumn Song we love – ‘Autumn Days’ by Estelle White

Our favourite Autumn song is ‘Autumn Days’ by Estelle White.

We think the words are really beautiful and we love the melody.

Unfortunately this is on You Tube

which is blocked in many schools.


Here are the words:

We have highlighted our favourite ones.

We think they paint great ‘word pictures’.

Autumn days when the grass is jewelled 

And the silk inside a chestnut shell

Jet planes meeting in the air to be refuelled. 

All these thing I love so well 

Autumn is Here

Chorus: So I mustn’t forget 

No, I mustn’t forget. 

To say a great big 

Thank You 

I mustn’t forget

Clouds that look like familiar face 

And the winters moon with frosted rings

Smell of bacon as I fasten up my laces 

And the song the milkman sings

Whipped-up spray that is rainbow-scattered 

And a swallow curving in the sky 

Shoes so comfy though they’re worn out and they’re battered 

And the taste of apple pie.

Scent of gardens when the rain’s been falling 

And a minnow darting down a stream 

Picked-up engine that’s been stuttering and stalling 

And a win for my home team. 



Thank you too, to Seomra Ranga for organising

the #anfomhar ‘Signs of Autumn’ project.
