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 always thought that he was Spaniard from Barcelona.
    It's sad that he has passed away, but I have to laugh if I think of his act in Fawlty Towers.

    I will never forget the hamster/rat sketch.

    Definitely one of the very best.

    The rat episode is my favourite of all episodes too @Lynne. I can't understand why the BBC only ever made 12 episodes. I think I must have seen every episode several times over.
