September, poem by John Updique

Celebrem setembre amb un poema en anglès de John Updike. Poemem els mesos de l'any.


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.

Il·lustració de Lena Anderson.
