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

Is cultural knowledge more important than language skills?

    However, we are enjoying the convinence of new technology much more than the past, maybe the issue of unemployment is just one of our payments, besides that, the natural environment has been sufferring as well, much serious than any time of the history. @GemmaRowlands

    Ideas are fat but reality is slim @lisa? Is this a Chinese saying? I guess what you mean is that it is all very well in theory, but in practice it isn't the case.
