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

Q. What cheese can you use to get a bear out of it's cave?

A. Come on bear.

(Said like Camembert)

Here are some more cheesy puns.

    @Lynne very simple!...Whisper in the ear of bear, "You are going to become a part of next Jurassic Park's sequel." Come out of the cave so that I can take your picture! when he will come out. I will say, "Cheese" and take his picture. :)

    Grrrrr. I wouldn't like to cozy up too close to a bear. Better he stays in his cave.

    Bears have always been fond of honey @korczzix, even before they invented the cheese.

    That's my bear, @lichaamstaal! That looks like a nice piece of Gruyere (or is it Emmental?).
