Happy September

The morns are meeker than they were -
The nuts are getting brown -
The berry's cheek is plumper -
The Rose is out of town.

The Maple wears a gayer scarf -
The field a scarlet gown -
Lest I should be old fashioned
I'll put a trinket on.

- Emily Dickinson

Such a beautiful poem! It is still fiercely summer but I imagine that the cooler winds will begin to blow soon!
