It's not that I don't like summer. Summer is okay. But those lazy, hazy, crazy days drag on a little too long for me. I'm ready for crisp air and crunchy leaves and chilly nights. I'm ready for socks and closed-toe shoes.
Summer stretches on and on, sometimes feeling as if it will never end. Autumn, on the other hand, comes with a sense of energy and even urgency. It gives me a boost of energy, a desire to get up and get moving.
So I'm up and moving quickly, a spring in my step and a song running through my mind. Do you know it?
September SongWell, it's a long, long whileFrom May to DecemberBut the days grow shortWhen we reach SeptemberWhen the Autumn weatherTurns the leaves to flameOne hasn't got timeFor the waiting gameOh, the days dwindle downTo a precious fewSeptember~November~And these few precious daysI'll spend with youThese golden daysI'll spend with youK. Weill and M. Anderson
What about you? Are you happy to see Autumn come? Or sad to see Summer go?
