Michael's Sept. challenge

Michael Strong's challenge to the enjoyMichaelStrongStamps yahoo list:
Our card making challenge is a little different this month. There is an old standard called "September Song" composed by Kurt Weill in 1938. It's a wistful almost sad song. Here are 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 September, November And these few precious days I'll spend with you These precious days I'll spend with you"

Your challenge this month is to express any part of this song in a visual composition. It's you choice, pick any part of the song for your inspiration. Colors and images are also up to you. It is not necessary to use a MSRS. "

The stamped oval image is one of Michael's stamps. The rest are die cuts and punches with Distress inks and copper embossed dots for texture and color.
