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

New Meaning - To roast

TeachTeach Your TeacherHomePosts: 10,479 mod
Traditionally if you roast something you cook it (especially meat) by prolonged exposure to heat in an oven or over a fire.

Informally it can also mean to criticize or reprimand severely.

Now, seemingly, it's a trend on the internet. Roasting is when people put their photo online and ask to be insulted.

    The things people do for fun @Lynne! But I suppose if folk do have to keep taking selfies all the time, then a good roasting is the least they should expect.
