September Poem

"The Apple Gatherer" by Helen Galloway McNicoll

“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 hum,
and Mother cuts
Like plates washed clean
with suds, the days
are polished with
a morning haze.


The image we chose to accompany this is
“The Apple Gatherer”
