TO SHARE ON THIS 1st TUESDAY OF SEPTEMBER
@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
And these few precious days I’ll spend with you
These precious days I’ll spend with you” — lyrics written by Maxwell Anderson
(September Song ~ sung by Frank Sinatra in 1965)

I love fall . . . “cool and crisp” and time to spend “out in” my favorite time of the year. thanks –joanie
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
oh autumn does play its very own symphony…a bit melancholic…colorful…thoughtful..thanks for bringing us into the mood to sing along…enjoyed to nod to sinatra as well
A lovely tribute to Autum, Joanie…I love the rhythm and pace of the piece….and the September Song rendered by Sinatra is a great touch 🙂 Thanks much for sharing this!
