By all these lovely tokens
September days are here,
With summer’s best of weather
And autumn’s best of cheer.

Helen Hunt Jackson - September
The breezes taste
Of apple peel.
The air is full
Of smells to feel-
Ripe fruit, old footballs,
Burning brush,
New books, erasers,
Chalk, and such.
The bee, his hive,
Well-honeyed hum,
And Mother cuts
Like plates washed clean
With suds, the days
Are polished with
A morning haze.

John Updike, September

The Purple Man

A purple man wakes up in his purple house, on a purple morning. He gets out of his purple bed, goes to his purple bathroom, brushes his purple teeth with his purple toothpaste, puts on his purple clothes and eats his purple breakfast. After eating his purple toast, and drinking his purple tea he puts on his purple clothes, leaves his purple house, shuts his purple front door, gets into his purple car and drives down the purple road.

He drives to a purple marina, where his purple yacht is bobbing on the purple waves. He boards the purple boat and sails on the purple sea, under the beautiful purple sky. The wind fills his purple sails, and he sails to a remote purple island, moors the purple boat and drops the purple anchor. He dives into the purple sea, and swims to the purple island where he lies on the purple beach, and it's such a beautiful day that he falls asleep.

When he wakes up his purple boat has disappeared: the purple anchor slipped off and the purple boat sailed away over the purple sea, and he screams...

"Oh my god! I'm marooned!"

    I'd prefer to be maroon if I lived in a purple world.

    it reminded me about this song:

    "Blue (Da Ba De)"

    Yo listen up here's a story
    About a little guy that lives in a blue world
    And all day and all night and everything he sees
    Is just blue like him inside and outside
    Blue his house with a blue little window
    And a blue corvette
    And everything is blue for him and himself
    And everybody around
    'Cause he ain't got nobody to listen to

    I'm blue da ba dee da ba die...
