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

A fun book for anyone really interested in accents, but I've posted it here because their website gives you the chance to listen to and record the word "potato".

    Do you pronounce 'spud' like 'potato' @mheredge? I'm imagining that.

    :)

    Spud is a British colloquial name for a potato.

    In the services (army, navy), peeling the spuds was jankers - punishment duty.
