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

    Usually I'm a dead loss at such quizes. This time is no exception - 5/20 and most of the correct answers were randomly chosen. What's your score @mheredge ?

    I think I only scored one more than you @Vok and like you, half of these were guesses.
