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,
New books, erasers,
Chalk, and such.
The bee, his hive,
And Mother cuts
Like plates washed clean
With suds, the days
Are polished with
A morning haze.
John Updike, September
, here is the story from last Friday.
Looking forward to your correction as Grammarly and Ginger didn't help me much.
Summer 2016 came to its end, but that particular day was nice and sunny so I took the advantage to go shopping.
My main goal was food shopping, but window shopping was also welcome.
The greengrocery was on the shopping street, not far from my house and I always walked to there.
I passed by one outlet store on my way to and from the greengrocer.
I had promised myself to keep away from any dress shop, but this outlet always put a rack outside full of jeans and other trousers, each for a very low price!
And I couldn’t resist stopping there and rummaged through all those clothes.
To date I had been able to restrain myself; let’s see what would happen today.
“Hmm, these jeans could fit me. Shall I try them? A pair of jeans more or less never goes amiss, right?”
I decided to try and went into the shop, looking for a fitting room.
There was only one, the entrance was half closed by a curtain.
I wasn’t sure whether somebody was using the room or not at that moment.
Shall I go or shall I not?
I decided to go inside; opened the curtain and almost jumped out of my skin!
I saw somebody there in a flash.
Oh sorry!” I apologized, but ... I didn’t hear any response!
When I looked again carefully, I realised what happened.
I apparently saw my shadow in the mirror.
What an embarrassing! Luckily, there was no one around.
For your information, the jeans fitted me very well and I bought them.
I did a bargain, it was worth the shock, but I broke my promise.
