September's Baccalaureate
A combination is
Of Crickets--Crows--and Retrospects
And a dissembling Breeze

That hints without assuming--
An Inneundo sear
That makes the Heart put up its Fun
And turn Philosopher.
~~ Emily Dickinson

"September's Baccalaureate" this. Up here in upper northern California, I am still looking for a little of that fall magic. Yesterday, we hit 110 degrees. Today, the same is expected. The weather scammers keep promising a cooling trend but I don't think we've been under 100 for 2-3 weeks.

Please, oh, please...a send "a dissembling Breeze." Nice to read you again.

I love that - the end of September is certainly starting to feel that way.

Ronda and Cyndy: I've been writing in a private journal, and on other websites, trying to get some type of foothold--without success, but their readers love my comments. Sigh.

I've written a few pieces for Cube to release this coming week. More to follow. I am up-to-date on my writing now--even wrote a few poems.

So back to Cube. Thanks for reading.

I can't decide, Cube, whether to sing the poem to "Yellow Rose of Texas" or to the theme of "Gilligan's Island"


PS For Fall I always think of Justin Hayward's song "Forever Autumn" from Jeff Wayne's "War of the Worlds".

You scared the Bejesus out of me, T. I couldn't think what you were referring to, at first. Whew.

I hope your other projects will soon get the appreciation that they undoubtedly deserve! In the meantime it is always a treat when you post something here.

And HaHa, T-man! Either song would work, although this might be a case where setting the words to music might actually detract or at least distract from their meaning.

You have to watch T, Cyndy...he's a sharp one.

Don't encourage the T, Cube. He may burst out with pun after groan-inducing pun. We don't want that, do we?

Emily had a keen sense of humour, and I think she'd laugh at the pairing of ridiculous music with her poetry.
