THE MORNING GLORY AND SEPTEMBER SONG TO NANCY FOR YOUR BIRTHDAY SEPTEMBER 24, 1998 The morning glory trails around the yard; Its blossoms flare in tiny trumpet forms Which seem to blare the changing of the guard As summer moves to autumn's frethfl storms. September's song has melancholy strains Which soothe the heart in tender memories And washaway the worst of human pains And let us muse in sweetest reveries. I do not praise the flower and the song Because that each is pleasant in itself, But more, my dear, because they both belong In close association to yourself. September resonates for me eternally, For in that month your birth became my destiny Sam Salvatore (Sam) Catalano Local characters attend a past year's Mountain Harvest Festival.
