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

It's interesting to see what tea is called in different tea drinking countries.

    ..and we say Tee with a captital T of course. A German teacher would it explain as Tee is touchable and you can see the tea bag or the tea leaves.

    Hi Kabir,

    Chai in England tends to be milky and sweet.

    Here's a bonus correction:-

    We call it chai. I enjoy it with my friends, and every sip of chai (Tea) brings back a past of memorable days.

    We call it 'Chaa' in gujarati language. So many people are used to have it every single time.
