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 remember years ago
Someone told me I should take caution
When it comes to love ...


"The world was a fantastic, marvelous, awesome place, Rose decided."

    I think I will correct Mr Arthur, we simply wouldn't say "take caution". We might say:-

    I should be cautious.
    I should take precautions.
    I should take care.
    I should be careful.

    :P

    I should have loved more
    Have wept more
    Having seen the sunrise
    I should have risked more
    And even wrong more
    Have done what I wanted to do

    Nice @Helvio.

    And even been wrong more.

    To be wrong vs to wrong.

    Or it could be: And even more wrong ...

  • I know I should be prepared to face the reality in life, but I wouldn't admit to involve into something that I consider unusable , but if I could read my future, that'll be better, but unfortunately I can't

    @Noelgerard:-

    I know I should be prepared to face reality, but I wouldn't involve myself in something that I considered unusable. However, if I could read my future, that would be better, but unfortunately I can't.

    No wonder many people have problems with English - there is too many ways to say "take caution" as @Lynne showed. I am still confused ... Did Mr Arthur make a mistake or it is a slang?
  • LynneLynne Your Teacher HomePosts: 9,489 mod
    For me it would simply be more 'natural' to say "be cautious" or "be careful", or maybe "take precautions", but "take caution" is used, and let's face it, it fits in the song nicely. :)

    I'm being very lazy today. I know, I should get ready and leave in 10 minutes, if I want to join the group in time. I can't see my cat. Where is she? Oh god, she is nowhere to be seen. I should not have left the door open.

    If I Were you, I would invite my friends to my engagement, but you should revise if your partner agree with you. In the other hand if you got a party, you should concentrait in it, and after few months you could give a party and you shoud be share yor experiencies about that.

    I should read more books in english, if I am willing to expand my vocabulary. I would be able to buy more of books, if I don't expand so much money buying new clothes .

    Yes, it's better to clothe our brains with smart thoughts through reading books instead buying new unnecessary clothes!
