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

    What kind of bar is it? this is a kind of request I had never heard. ;)

    A bar is where drinks (usually alcoholic) are served @Bubbly. So in general, this is not a place to bring children.

    I haven't met any solicitors in Thailand yet.
