September Poetry



SEPTEMBER
by John Updike


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 hums,
While Mother cuts
chrysanthemums.

Like plates washed clean
with suds, the days
are polished with
a morning haze.
