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

    Try a Northern accent:-

    I think I got about 20% of that! But Sunderland and Newcastle have their own dialect and when they speak, can be almost totally incomprehensible to anyone who's not a local.

    Cockney rhyming slang can be a challenge too @SLB. Did you see the post that I sent to @filauzio a few days ago?

    I'm not sure what you mean. If it was a personal message you sent to him no one else can see it.
