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

    The fireman was flirting with me under the umbrella in the ashes of the old hotel where we had first met.

    When the fireman cleaned-up the ashes in the hotel, he found the umbrella used during flirting in the rain.

    In the hotel I saw the fireman was flirting with me, brushing off ashes from his umbrella as we laughed.

    The fireman saw the girl with the umbrella coming out of the hotel and running to the ash tree to flirt with a handsome guy.

    Generally you shouldn't really describe a guy as 'pretty' @Paulette. He might not be too happy. Handsome or good looking might be better.

    Thanks @mheredgeI searched and yes I found the description that the word pretty is for girls and handsome for boys.
