BEAUTIFUL WORDS, SET TO MUSIC, WILL LIVE IN OUR HEARTS FOREVER.

 Music has been the center of my life--my world--for as long as I remember.  Happy...Sad...Troubled...or Joyous...Music has "accompanied" me through the worst and best of times.  

Some songs are simply immortal. When certain melodies, lyrics, and voices merge-together to touch your heart ... those songs become classic and unforgettable. Written and released in 1938, the year I was born, September Song is a now a classic, a favorite...loved by the whole world.

No one sang it better than Frank Sinatra:

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.

FALL is my favorite time of the year. I think of it as all-of-nature beginning the process of Hibernation; nature's universal preparation for the long sleep.  There will never be a more beautiful song to set FALL in motion  than... AUTUMN LEAVES. I lived and loved in the era of Nat King Cole.  His voice, smooth as silk, sang AUTUMN LEAVES....straight to the heart.

AUTUMN LEAVES

The falling leaves… drift by my window,

The autumn leaves of red and gold.

I see your lips, the summer kisses,

The sun-burned hands--I used to hold.

Since you went away-- the days grow long,

And soon I'll hear old winter's song.

But I miss you most of all-- my darling---

When autumn leaves start to fall.
