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

    @chyijung, I love your question. Thank you for it. I doubt that all of them are that clever.

    How many people do you know who like giving interviews in front of their bookshelves?

    @chyijung got you!

    Thank you @Hermine . I ever went to a restaurant decorated with empty book covers. Maybe this can increase our appetite.

    Don't you know the quote: "your eyes show the strength of your soul"

    Or did you mean:
    Through the window of the eye the soul regards the world's beauty.

    Does it means people with near sight have weaker soul?

    ---

    Does that mean that people who are near-sighted (myopia) have a weaker soul?

    Can you see in the eyes of someone if he is honest?

    Is it strange when I say that some people have warm eyes?

    Would it bother you if the rest of the world didn't find you attractive?
