Emily Dickinson - September's Baccalaureate

September's Baccalaureate
A combination is
Of Crickets -- Crows -- and Retrospects
And a dissembling Breeze

That hints without assuming --
An Innuendo sear
That makes the Heart put up its Fun
And turn Philosopher.

Looking for something to say at a small town Baccalaureate, to my delight, Emily considered it. I pray that this class may stay away from "Innuendo's sear" or is it sneer. May they be careful about their words with each other, so this student population for a moment or for a season may not need to protect themselves from each other by waxing philosophic. Enjoy each other's presence..
