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

Confusing abbreviations

I just had to work out what DM meant in this sentence:-

For those that don't know, Clyde is the Discord bot. He's been telling you things from time to time now, i.e. if you try to DM someone that's blocked you, if you use the /nick command to change your nickname.

Now I can add a new meaning of DM to my current list:-

Doc Martens
Deutsch Mark
drogerie markt

And now:-
direct message

I will add it to the list:-

    Context is key with a lot of abbreviations, but it is incredibly difficult to work out what they could be in a second language. And the age of technology has made things even more difficult, as everything seems to be abbreviated while "DMing"!
