From the American poet and writer Helen Maria Hunt Jackson, born Helen Fiske (October 15, 1830 – August 12, 1885), best known for her novel Ramona, a musing on this time of year. She expressed her grief for the loss of her son, Warren (“Rennie”) in poems that she sent to the New York Evening Post over the signatures “Marah” and later “H.H.”

“By all these lovely tokens
September days are here,
With summer’s best of weather
And autumn’s best of cheer.”
