I came across this old song entitled September Song written by Maxwell Anderson and Kurt Weill. It was written in the 1930's and used in several movies over the years. Here are a portion of the words.
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
Oh these few precious days I'll spend with you
These precious days I'll spend here with you
The last two lines especially sum up perfectly my thoughts on fall.
It really is a beautiful song and there are many versions sung by many artists but I really liked this old one from 1955 sung by Jimmy Durante. You can listen to it by clicking this link
Happy First Day Of Fall everyone! Go out and enjoy!
