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 first saw this word in a News Round Up article: http://www.english-magazine.org/english-reading/english-news-round-up/4011-news-round-u-185

It is an adjective used to describe anything pertaining to or tending to cause obesity.

Seemingly it first appeared in 1996.
