My October Treasure


Near Homeplace in October 2012

October, I love you and here’s the reason,
you are the best part of my favorite season.
You kiss the pumpkins in kind, cool nights;
you schedule the wild geese for southern flights.
You color the leaves in Crayola blends,
then light up the sky until autumn ends.
You welcome each moment with radiant foxfire;
you are the season that I most admire.
Your rains are gentle, your joys are deep;
October, you are my treasure to keep.

  1. November is also worthy of a poem but I don’t yet have one ready to post.


  2. Alas, goodbye October…


  3. Beautiful poem. Like the Crayon reference.
    And October is when the humidity finally dies down!
