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
Like plates washed clean
With suds, the days
Are polished with
A morning haze.

John Updike, September

    There was news a few weeks ago that he wasn't well @Bubbly, so it's not a surprise. He was one of my favourite singers. I quite like his song 'Marianne'.

    The letter that Leonard Cohen wrote to Marianne, two days before she passed away, 29 July 2016, less than four months ago.
