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

    Hey it looks like it might want to try it!
  • mheredgemheredge Teacher Here and therePosts: 27,013 mod
    Yummy! Especially with lots of butter.
  • [Deleted User][Deleted User] Posts: 1,493
    Yuk! I really don't like them.
  • SLBSLB Posts: 1,289 ✭✭✭✭

    Girl! I like that.

    If you like eating a sponge that has just been toasted, you'll love them @SillyLittleBleeder‌.
  • SLBSLB Posts: 1,289 ✭✭✭✭
    so you've tried them, haven't you?
    I'm quite sure they're not as bad as you're describing them. But maybe that's because they remind me of You-Know-What

    Fatal error! Fatal error!

    Please do not mix up pancakes and that stuff.

  • SLBSLB Posts: 1,289 ✭✭✭✭

    And what's wrong with pancakes and crumpets?
  • [Deleted User][Deleted User] Posts: 1,493

    I have fond memories of crumpets for Sunday tea. They were always running with melted butter. Without, they'd be disgusting!
  • SLBSLB Posts: 1,289 ✭✭✭✭
    @mheredge‌ really? so it's true then, they taste bad?
  • mheredgemheredge Teacher Here and therePosts: 27,013 mod
    They don't taste bad, but the texture, if they don' have anything on them, can be a bit dry and off-putting. Like @Xeb says, like eating a sponge!

    I see.
  • mheredgemheredge Teacher Here and therePosts: 27,013 mod
    Crumpets for me is synonymous with Sunday tea, in front of a warm fire.
  • LynneLynne Your Teacher HomePosts: 9,477 mod
    If there is an open fire, I would want a thick slice of toast on a toasting fork. Happy memories.
  • mheredgemheredge Teacher Here and therePosts: 27,013 mod
    We only had a little electric fire, but in a nice fireplace. Not quite the same though.
