A September Poem by John Updike + Sep 2016 Free Desktop Calendar Wallpaper

Listen to this article

While searching for some book, I happened to stumble upon this beautiful vintage book…

A Child’s Calendar – Illustrated by New Hampshire Artist Trina Schart Hyman, and featuring monthly poems by celebrated American poet John Updike.


The breezes taste
Of apple peel.
The air is full
Of smells to feel–

Ripe fruit, old footballs,
Drying grass,
New books and blackboard
Chalk in class.

The bee, his hive
Well-honeyed, hums
While Mother cuts

Like plates washed clean
With suds, the days
Are polished with
A morning haze.

Well, about the golden Day-lilies calendar here…


I feel that mother Nature is giving these last smiles of summer before metamorphosing in the magnificence of the sublime season of fall!
