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

Lots of tea. Though some people didn't think there was enough tea in China to solve this problem.

Stiff upper lip? I notice that there has been some twitches, as there are limits to how stoic people can remain when half the country votes Leave.

This article is more about what the English think of England and Englishness and how do they see their future in Britain and Europe. But the British are a peculiar bunch. It seems quite a lot of Brexiters voted to leave the EU, thinking that this would just reduce the Remain majority, without thinking that their actions might help cause the political turmoil that seems to have backfired badly. They seem to have cut off their noses to spite their faces.
