  • How smartly September comes in, like a racing gig, all style, no confusion.

  • I am of many moods and many shapes; / I strip the chestnut and I tread the grapes. / The pulse of life runs high within my veins; / My hands and lips are red with berry stains. / I bid the leaves from all their dances cease / And die a sudden death. And I release / The spell of summer, so that all remember / Winter and death at beck of me, September.

  • September is different from all other months. It is more magical. I feel the strange chemical change in the earth which produces mushrooms is the cause, too, of the extra 'life' in the air — a resilience, a sparkle.

  • Do you remember / That sweet September / When sky was golden and sea was blue, / We two together / In love's own weather / Walking at sunset the woodland through. / ... / Ah! shall we ever / Walk again in the dear old way?

  • September is a sweep of dusky, purple asters, a sumac branch swinging a fringe of scarlet leaves, and the bittersweet scene of wild grapes when I walk down the lane to the mailbox. September is a golden month of mellow sunlight and still clear days. ... Small creatures in the grass, as if realizing their days are numbered, cram the night air with sound. Everywhere goldenrod is full out.

  • September is summer without the crowds.
