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
Like plates washed clean
With suds, the days
Are polished with
A morning haze.

John Updike, September

    I didn`t know that you like socks with sandals, @Lynne. I think the more I`writing about it the more pimples I am getting.

    Socks and sandals are a big NO NO @Hermine! I don't think Lynne sports these.

    I can't get over how in Asia there are so many Union Jack T-shirts being worn. Half the time the people wearing them don't even seem all that aware that they're sporting the British national flag either.

    Do you mean that you don't mind wearing socks and sandals @fwamie? I've given up wearing sandals even with socks, as it's too cold now.

    Summertime just has to be one of my favourite songs.

    And what do you think of this one @mheredge? This reminds me of the very old days, when my father played it on a big audio tape recorder.

  • Maryland state in the US, @callampito‌? How short is summer there?

    @callampito, when I hear Maryland I think on Michael Jackson`s property.
