Welcome to the first day of Autumn! I was hoping someone would ask me to use the word ‘equinoctial’ in a sentence. But I managed, as I am always looking for a Curious Word.

There was no leap

no jump, and clearly

no Spring

on that day the sun began

its smooth glide 

into equinoctial splendor


some local hawthorn berries


Autumn has caught us in our summer wear. –Philip Larkin, British poet (1922–86)
