The Gifts Of September

I went for a walk the other day, and just wanted to share some of the gift's of September that I came across while walking.
Along with some of my favorite September quotes.

"There comes a time when autumn asks,
"What have you been doing all summer?"

"What a pity flowers can utter no sound!—
A singing rose, a whispering violet, a murmuring honeysuckle ...
oh, what a rare and exquisite miracle would these be!"

                                                                                                         - Henry Ward Beecher

"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, 1830-1885

"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

Smile and remember;
We're fool's whether we dance or not. So we might as well dance.
Japanese Proverb
