September About this sound (pronunciation) is the ninth month of the year in the Gregorian Calendar and one of four Gregorian months with 30 days.

In Latin, septem means "seven" and septimus means "seventh"; September was in fact the seventh month of the Roman calendar until 153 BCE, when the first month changed from Kalendas Martius (1 March) to Kalendas Januarius (1 January).[1] In the Northern hemisphere, the beginning of the meteorological autumn is 1 September[2].

September marks the beginning of the ecclesiastical year in the Eastern Orthodox Church. September begins on the same day of the week as December every year, because there are 91 days separating September and December, which is a multiple of seven (the number of days in the week).

September
by Dorothea Mackellar
From The Witch Maid, and Other Verses

[ 77 ]

SEPTEMBER

The morns are growing misty, the nights are turning
    cold,
The linden leaves are falling like a shower of gold;
And over where my heart is, beneath the southern sun,
The shearing's nearly over and the spring's begun.

The crying flocks are driven to feed in peace again,
They stream and spread and scatter on the smooth green
    plain.
And in the sky above them the soft spring breezes keep
A flock of clouds as snowy as the new-shorn sheep.

Now later comes the sunshine and sooner comes the
    dark,
The barefoot newsboys shiver, the ladies in the Park

[ 78 ]

Wear furs about their shoulders, for autumn winds are keen,
And rusty curling edges fleck the chestnuts' green.

The mists hang gauzy curtains of pearl and pigeon-blue
Between us and the distance, the street-lamps shining through
Wear each a golden halo diaphanous and fair—
But not one whit more lovely than my own clear air.

More dear than you can dream it, as bright as diamond
It bathes the plains and ridges and the hills beyond,
It bathes the pillared woodlands that ring with bellbird notes,
With mating calls and answers from a thousand throats.

[ 79 ]

The lamps are lit in London, beneath their searching light
The smiling anxious faces look strained and very white;
And over where my heart is, twelve thousand miles away,
The dewy grass is glinting at the break of day.

London.

From LoveToKnow 1911

SEPTEMBER (Lat. septem, seven), the seventh month of the old Roman year, in which it had thirty days assigned to it. In the Julian calendar, while retaining its former name and number of days, it became the ninth month. The Ludi Magni (Ludi Romani) in honour of Jupiter, Juno and Minerva began on the 4th of September. The principal ecclesiastical feasts falling within the month are: the Nativity of the Blessed Virgin on the 8th, the Exaltation of the Holy Cross on the 14th, St Matthew the apostle on the 21st, and St Michael the archangel on the 29th. September was called "harvest month" in Charlemagne's calendar, and it corresponds partly to the Fructidor and partly to the Vendemiaire of the first French republic. The Anglo-Saxons called the month Gerstmonath, barley month, that crop being then usually harvested. It is still called Herbstmonat, harvest month, in Switzerland.
