September Ends Too Soon

I like September. It was my mother’s birthday month. It has often been a time of new beginnings for me. This month I got a new car and a new dog.

I’m sad to see September end. Oh, October is a beautiful month, and early November is nice. But then the weather turns bitter and gray. If it were not for the holiday lights, I don’t know if I would make it through the short days of winter.

Gather ye rosebuds while ye may, 
Old Time is still a-flying; 
And this same flower that smiles today, 
Tomorrow will be dying. 
~  Robert Herrick
