September [Sep. 1st, 2014|11:05 am]
Tony Grist
Summer is over?

Yes, summer is over. There's not the heat in the sun any more. I take my afternoon walk and I'm not putting on my hat because sunstroke and brain fever no longer seem to threaten.

There are still raspberries and blackberries on the bushes. A very few. I pick and eat them on my rounds.

When I was a wean we used to take our vacation in early September. It was one of the good things about being privately educated that the summer holidays stretched out beyond those the state schools had.  They weren't very summery vacations. I remember having to wear a windcheater on the beach- and we didn't sun ourselves but followed energetic pursuits like shrimping or sand castle building.  I still can't see the point of lying on a beach; beaches are for bouncing all over.

September- as many poets have gratefully discovered- rhymes with remember. It's one of my favourite months.

I'm a deep Autumn person and earth is my element so you won't hear me complaining

September is a melancholy month- but melancholy can be a pleasure.

Quick chorus (to the tune of Frere Jacques)


I'm a melon, I'm a melon
Cauliflower, cauliflower
I'm a melancholy, I'm a melancholy
Cauliflower, caulifower........

Though my favourite season is spring, I do like late summer. When I was a child we couldn't extend our holidays into September, but we did always take them as late as possible because I think it was slightly cheaper at the end of August and it was certainly less crowded. Almost all our holiday photos of us on the beach have us wearing sweaters and cardis over our swimming costumes.

We have pictures of us on the beach-all wrapped up. I thought of posting one, but I don't have them uploaded and I didn't have the energy to go through all the boxes and boxes of old photographs.

In our southern reaches here, summer is still on full tilt. It's almost 40ºC today and I am hating it. Looks like it won't let up for a good week or so. I long for a bit of crisp Autumn air.

Crisp would be good. Right now we've got damp and overcast.
