Sourced[edit]

  • The morrow was a bright September morn;
    The earth was beautiful as if new-born;
    There was that nameless splendor everywhere,
    That wild exhilaration in the air,
    Which makes the passers in the city street
    Congratulate each other as they meet.

  • O sweet September, thy first breezes bring
    The dry leaf's rustle and the squirrel's laughter,
    The cool fresh air whence health and vigor spring
    And promise of exceeding joy hereafter.
  • Come out 'tis now September,
    The hunter's moon's begun,
    And through the wheaten stubble
    Is heard the frequent gun.
