- Summer has come and passed: The innocent can never last; wake me up when September ends.
- 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.
- Do you remember, the 21st night of September? Love was changing the minds of pretenders, while chasing the clouds away.
- It was the third of September: That day, I'll always remember. Yes I will, because that was the day that my daddy died.
- Come out 'tis now September,
The hunter's moon's begun,
And through the wheaten stubble
Is heard the frequent gun.
- 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.
- Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, Tales of a Wayside Inn (1863–1874), Part I, The Student's Tale, The Falcon of Sir Federigo, line 135
