Try to remember

For many of us the seasons are changing, bouncing unpredictably between cold and warm. Are you glad to be moving into a new season, or wishing for one more week of the old?

Autumn is beautiful.

I love when the season is already there with all the symphony of colors in display. The nature is beautiful. And if I can I go out to enjoy the sights I do. I would like to have words and the ability to put them together with some sense to describe what I feel contemplating the Autumn landscapes. I can’t. I prefer to show you one of them near to my city.

Because of my circumstances I’m lately tied to the urban environment, but I have in my city enough green spaces to enjoy the change of the season and I always can remember. When I feel down, which is often when the season is changing, I use to sing the old song from “The Fantasticks” that used to perform Jerry Orbach:

Try to remember the kind of September
When life was slow and oh, so mellow.
Try to remember the kind of September
When grass was green and grain was yellow.
Try to remember the kind of September
When you were a tender and callow fellow.
Try to remember, and if you remember,
Then follow.

Follow, follow, follow, follow, follow,
Follow, follow, follow, follow.

Try to remember when life was so tender
That no one wept except the willow.
Try to remember when life was so tender
That dreams were kept beside your pillow.
Try to remember when life was so tender
That love was an ember about to billow.
Try to remember, and if you remember,
Then follow.

Follow, follow, follow, follow, follow,
Follow, follow, follow, follow.

Deep in December, it’s nice to remember,
Although you know the snow will follow.
Deep in December, it’s nice to remember,
Without a hurt the heart is hollow.
Deep in December, it’s nice to remember,
The fire of September that made us mellow.
Deep in December, our hearts should remember
And follow.
