Please polish this paragraph:

Autumn wind cool, while sweet-scented osmanthus fragrant, China is flooded with moon cakes. Awakening! Autumn Festival is forthcoming once again!

I think your paragraph is refinedly-written. Anyway I will try my best to help you.

Maybe I don't know about grammar. But why is it possible to have no "verb", and only form as part of a statement for the following:
- Autumn wind cool, while sweet-scented osmanthus fragrant

You may consider to delete "once" at the last statement. Meaning is slightly changed, but the statement become a bit concise.

You cannot put verbs there. Otherwise, that would be a grammatical error.

Unless you devided the one sentence into 3.

Hi, that is my question..
I suppose it has to divide one sentence into 3. How come it can take off the verbs andthen to combine into 1 sentence only.

What is the name of the type of grammar?
I would like to learn more about it.

Guess from the structure of this statement.
Is the following correct:
I a boy; while you a girl; we can sleep with each other.
