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 heard hubby snoring from upstairs while I was reading about how to make forks from sticks.

    I was reading a Book on Snoring which is forked in Two Edition.

    I was reading a book on snoring which is (forked) in two editions. (Forked is not correct in this context. It would be published)

    In palm reading, they say that when the Marriage Line ends in a fork with the Heart Line it indicates an unhappy marriage, but I think it's rather due to my snoring.

    I attended a reading about a fork shaped devise which you can put in your mouth to prevent snoring.

    Yesterday I was reading that when a dog snores a lot it will get fork shaped wrinkles on it's cheeks.

    I read that If you want the most cutting edge technology against snoring, you'd better be prepared to fork over the dough for it.

    I connected the front forks of my motorbike to a computer to make it self steering, so now I can snore away with it whilst reading.

    @Frank That looks like a torture instrument!

    The fork in the road led me to a tiny cottage, from where I could hear very loud snoring but in the book I had read there was not supposed to be anyone living there.

    When I started reading a slide on Farm and Fork, I felt that everybody is snoring in the hall.
