September

September

A Poem by Rita L. Sev
"

a limerick

One of the calendar’s members

Said, “Hey, it’s my turn now, remember?”

Of course, she was right

So August took flight

And now we must welcome September

School daze be here...

Very nicely penned Rita. September is a fine month and the gateway to fall.

Yay! Very excited for September - cooler weather and new beginnings... Thanks, Jack.
I lurve September! Ha. It's my Dad's birthday and I'm super excited about his birthday present. LOL. Random fact. Awesome piece!

:) Thanks, Noodle - and a happy birthday to your dad! :)
My weakness are for concise gems like this one. Great reference with "remember". This can sit alongside Robert Frost's October and Thomas Hood's November.

Thank you for that - quite an honor it is!
And what a month it is! I think 90% of the women I've ever known were born in September. (All those cold late December and early January nights?) As always, your words are a pleasure, Rita.

And the months go so quickly....faster with each passing year it seems. Good personification in this one. I liked it. Lydi**

I'm always sad to see August depart and September come in to visit! Oh, why does summer ever have to end?
This is such a sweet poem...it even makes up for September's rude arrival. Well, almost...

What a cute write, Rita. The rhythm and rhyme are perfect, and your humorous side shines brightly in each line. (I'm not welcoming September with any enthusiasm, though - to me winter is an evil force waiting in the wings. ) But I enjoyed your poem very much.

Snow is only pretty when it's new, Rita. Once it's smudged with car fumes it's pretty dirty stuff. .. read more
