As Autumn Wanes
The bird in loud and plaintive cry
in flocks begin to soouthward fly.
The leaves in shades of red and brown
to earth come softly floating down.
The fields of green begin to turn
And look so stark and bare.
The flowers being to fade and die
As frost shows everywhere.
The air grows colder day by day
A change is taking place,
As fall is soon to be replaced
By Winter's snowy face.

The Indians asked their Chief in autumn if the winter was going to be
cold or not. Not really knowing an answer, the chief replies that
the winter was going to be cold and that the members of the village
were to collect wood to be prepared.
Being a good leader, he then went to the next phone booth and called the
National Weather Service and asked, "Is this winter to be cold?"
The man on the phone responded, "This winter is going to be quite cold indeed."
So the Chief went back to speed up his people to collect even more wood to be prepared.
A week later he called the National Weather Service again, "Is it going to be a very cold winter?"
"Yes", the man replied, "it's going to be a very cold winter."
So the Chief goes back to his people and orders them to go and find every scrap of wood they can find.
Two weeks later he calls the National Weather Service again: "Are you absolutely sure that the
winter is going to be very cold?"
"Absolutely," the man replies, "the Indians are collecting wood like crazy!"
