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

    The Tennis Court Oath, a pivotal event during the first days of the French Revolution, was not as easy as pie.

    While the tennis players sweared their sportmanship oath on the opening ceremony of the games, the referee took his time having some pie for lunch.
