Dies Vini Rosarumque

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 The autumn is a gloomy time,
The leaves fall from the trees.
Hard rains pour down, wild west winds blow,
And other things like these.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 But we’re not feeling sad just now,
Our mood is quite upbeat,
Because we’re winning all our games,
Which means we’re still unbeat.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 And what to say ’bout DCL?
He scores in every outing!
His critics are an extinct breed,
Nobody now is doubting.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 No doom or gloom for us today,
We’re soaring, flying high,
We’re looking down on all the rest,
Above us only sky.

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 For some October may be bleak,
But not for us Bluenoses,
We would not call these dismal times,
They’re days of wine and roses!

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 We’re feeling rather chipper now,
Indeed, could not be merrier,
Because so pretty we do sit
Alone, atop the Premier.

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 5/10/20
