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

    Hi Effie,

    I answered this one on your timeline:-

    "repaired" (Because it is no longer in a repaired state).
    (I wouldn't use broke down, just "... it broke again".)

    Your tweaking is correct:

    @Frank - you could also say, "According to the report, the president was shot by a lone gunman."
