And I'm Still Not Packed

I have to leave on a business trip in a couple hours. I was hoping to write a fresh post and do a little visiting before I left but some unexpected circumstances borrowed my time and now I'm fresh out. Work calls and I'm off. This month is racing by, but while I'm gone please enjoy one of my favorite poems from one of my favorite poets, MacNeiece, before September is gone as well.


September has come, it is hers
Whose vitality leaps in the autumn,
Whose nature prefers
Trees without leaves and a fire in the fire-place;
So I give her this month and the next
Though the whole of my year should be hers who has
rendered already
So many of its days intolerable or perplexed
But so many more so happy;
Who has left a scent on my life and left my walls
Dancing over and over with her shadow,
Whose hair is twined in all my waterfalls
And all of London littered with remembered kisses.

Louis MacNeice
From Autumn Journal

See ya soon! Well not really...but maybe when I get back I will share the adventures of the ER on a Friday night : ) P.S. Everyone is fine.


  1. We aren't "fire in the fireplace" weather, yet, but I'm definitely ready for the cooler weather of autumn!

    Another ER visit? Oh, no!

  2. What? The ER? You can't just run off without telling that story!

  3. Glad everyone is fine. Thanks for putting us at ease.Safe travels and chat when you get back

  4. Love this poem! October is my favorite month, but September is its predecessor. Hope your trip is going well. I'm a late packer too. :-)

  5. Thanks for stopping by ladies : ) I'm up to my ears!

  6. I am not a "fall" girl. Depresses me. April is the best mood month to me. Come back and catch us up! ER on Friday night? Eeek!
