      THANKS MICHAEL ~ Perceptive as ever ~ even so early in the morning ! MOI use cliches ? NEVER ! Ich bin ein WORTSCHMIT ! Thanks for your encouragement BRIAN The Ode Maker !

        Cliches - of course - in fact a poem of only cliches would go down well.

        If I had to choose a favourite month it would have to be September - a glorious tribute to its beauty Brian.

          Good write Brian. We are coming into autumn, my favourite time of the year and I am looking forward to those wonderful mornings where the sun is shining and the deep frost is on the ground.

          • BRIAN & ANGELA

            Thanks ANDY ~ pleased my PHOTO ticked your memory box too ! Every blessing BRIAN

            A fine write Brian. Is that 'mellow' stuff for October?!
            What happened to the months? 'Sept' is 7; 'Octo' is 8, etc? What got left out?! I can't remember it all.

            • BRIAN & ANGELA

              YES indeed Steve ~ for those of us steeped in the Classics it\'s all a bit confusing ~ With (Sept ~ Oct ~ Nov ~ Dec) we do seem to be two months adrift but THANK GOD ~ OCTANE ((CH3CH2CH2CH2CH2CH2CH2CH3) still has eight carbon atoms otherwise our IC Engines would grind to a halt ! Organic Chemists are not just Classicists we are Modest Genii as well ! Thanks for a fine comment ~ BRIAN

              September normally denotes a busier time of year for me but the UK economy is in slump, householders not spending, time on my hands, time to be inspired by your writing. Nice one sir!

              • BRIAN & ANGELA

                Thanks DA ~ I work in Higher & Further Education (Higher up the Wall & Further round the Bend !) So September kick starts the new term for me. Good area to work in ~ no discipline problems and (because job related qualifications are involved) they are all keen to learn and qualify ! We restart 11 September ~ so i will have less time to muse ! Thanks for your comment ~ BRIAN

                  Wonderful acrostic. And beautiful picture to accompany it! "Summer's glorious dying ember" WOW. That is an exquisite line! Love it! On another note, won't miss my kids going back to school, but, such is life. Again, I think you hit this one out of the park, as we say. Hugs! Christina

                  • BRIAN & ANGELA

                    THANKS CHRIS ~ Pleased you liked the Poem & the Picture ! in many ways September is a busy month ! In the UK (as in the USA) Schools & Colleges start back after a long Summer recess. I officaially start my NEW ROLE Head of Applied Science ~ Section on Monday 11 September (that's when the Students start) but we have Staff meetings etc next week ! I'm excited ~ but tired already. Still praying for TEXAS ~ for some poeple it is a frying pan ~ to fire experience ~ September Hugs ~ BRIAN

                    • malubotelho

                      Oh! I love September and even though here in Florida is the hurricane season and it is a bit scary but I love it because it is the transition to fall and I think soon enough we can be a little cooler. In my country is the spring time. So lovely spring. Thanks for this joyous poem Brian.

                    • myself and me

                      You make September so superb.
