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
Chrysanthemums.
Like plates washed clean
With suds, the days
Are polished with
A morning haze.

John Updike, September

Do you have what it takes to live as the Victorians did?

    No surprise really. I'm used to a fairly basic lifestyle (the scrubbing board for laundry is a luxury I don't have). I'm not sure I'd have fancied wearing a corset though.

    Congrats, you would survive the Victorian era! You have a great knack for creativity and resourcefulness, and you are flexible enough to go without modern luxuries. Yet again, you are also appreciative of the lost arts of the Victorian era and you enjoy beauty and its implementation into everyday life. If you were transported back in time, you'd fare well!

    I'd never survive that era.
    I'm glad to live in this present.

    I'm sure I would survive quite easily @Csilla. Life in many poorer countries isn't so different in many ways.

    I'm true victorian.

    Are you Victorian in your old fashioned views or just in what discomfort you could put up with @gomaa?
