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

If you could change one thing about your childhood, what would it be?

We all remember our childhoods, and some things will have good, and others will have been bad. But, if you could change one thing about those years, what would it be?

For me, I would try to stay more active and eat fewer treats, as I then wouldn't have been so fat during my teenage years, which wasn't fun at all.

What about you? What would you like to have changed?

    Maybe it would have been to learn a musical instrument.
