Silent Sunday – September

As long as the earth endures,  seedtime and  harvest,  cold and heat, summer and winter, day and night will never cease.          
Genesis 8:22

Apple Harvest 

The goldenrod is yellow; 
The corn is turning brown;
The trees in apple orchards
With fruit are bending down.

The gentian’s bluest fringes
Are curling in the sun;
In dusty pods the milkweed
Its hidden silk has spun.

The sedges flaunt their harvest,
In every meadow nook;
And asters by the brook-side
Make asters in the brook,

From dewy lanes at morning
The grapes’ sweet odors rise;
At noon the roads all flutter
With yellow butterflies.

By all these lovely tokens
September days are here,
With summer’s best of weather,
And autumn’s best of cheer.

But none of all this beauty
Which floods the earth and air
Is unto me the secret 
Which makes September fair.

T’is a thing which I remember;
To name it  thrills me yet:
One day of one September
I never can forget.

Helen Hunt Jackson
