September House Quilt Block
“Septem” means “seven” in Latin. September was the seventh month of the old Roman calendar, which had only ten months and which began in the spring in March.
This 12" September House quilt block is part of my Calendar of Houses Bee Quilt. A friend and I organized this on-line bee a couple of years ago after being members of two previous on-line bees.
The breezes taste
Of apple peel.
The air is full
Of smells to feel –
Ripe fruit, old footballs,
New books and blackboard
Chalk in class.
The bee, his hive
While Mother cuts
Like plates washed clean
With suds, the days
Are polished with
A morning haze.
