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

    I dropped her off at college and went to see her tutor at a drop in session, only to learn she had dropped out the week before.

    !Note - drop off can also mean to let someone out of a vehicle at a particular place.

    I often drop in on my grandfather. He is very old and he sometimes drops off while he is listening to me.

    I thought for a while to drop in for a seminar that was arranged by my organization but, then, I dropped out the idea because it was too late for me and I drop off the office.
