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

How did you meet your oldest friend?

Friends are very important to us. Some we have known for years, and others a shorter time, but that doesn't make them any less important.

It got me thinking.. how did you meet your oldest friend? By oldest, I don't mean the one with the highest age.. I mean the one who you have known the longest.

For me, I met them at school as they were in the same classes as me when we first started at the school. I have spoken to them ever since, and I am happy to class them as my best friend now!

What about you?

    I am still in contact with some of my oldest friends (school friends) but I don't think they are close friends any more. We have grown so far apart and have very little in common.

    It is a shame when that happens. I think that when we are children we have a lot of friends, and by the time we are adults we just have a few close friends - but those friends are worth a lot!
