A September Song

@dVersePoets DURING #OpenLinkNight

September plays autumn notes
written by summer drought
except for prelude of Isaac air

trees already pause for winter
in a great song of
“Hi ~ ber ~ nation”

our early unrecoverable refrain
an extra long symphony
now yellow leaves falling plays

a September Song

“Oh, it’s a long, long while from May to December
But the days grow short when you reach September
When the autumn weather turns the leaves to flame
One hasn’t got time for the waiting game
Oh, the days dwindle down to a precious few
September, November
And these few precious days I’ll spend with you
These precious days I’ll spend with you” — lyrics written by Maxwell Anderson

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

September Song” is an American pop standard composed by Kurt Weill, with lyric by Maxwell Anderson, introduced by Walter Huston in the 1938 Broadway musicalKnickerbocker Holiday. It has since been recorded by numerous singers and instrumentalists. It was also used in the 1950 film September Affair, and for the credits in the television series May to December (a quote from the opening line of the song).

(September Song ~ sung by Frank Sinatra in 1965)

  2. great illustration of the changing seasons. The first part did that job itself, but the altering of style for the second part was both very creative, and such a perfect illustration of the changing. Great read. Thanks
