“September” by Helen Hunt Jackson from Songs of the Treetop and Meadow, pub. 1898

The golden-rod is yellow;
The corn is turning brown;
The trees in apple orchards
With fruit are bearing down

apple orchard in September with my September daugher and her daughter…

September- a month made for music and poetry.  My first child was born in September and that marked a change in my life like no other.   For an old  retired teacher like me, it still means new beginnings.

See you in September!  But only for a few more days!

    Singers wearing suits, it looks so funny now, even if the music rising up above those collars were just fabulous. I must admit I don’t know the song. My first was born in May. I have children and grandchildren’s brithdays scattered through the year. I get to be sentimental all year round.

    What a great video – wearing suits at the beach, synchronized finger snapping – it’s just got it all. 🙂


  3. I’m planning a trip to the orchard if it ever stops ringing on my days off this month. Our tree, sadly, produced nothing this year.


  4. OMYgosh take me back to every summer’s end, always breaking up with someone. LOl…
