October is a splendid month
Wrapped in a flaming shawl It holds the richest treasures As the summer turns to fall.
The brilliant leaves swirl to the earth
Colors of orange and brown Dipped in scarlet and touched with bronze They fall tumbling to the ground.
The grass is dying, the flowers are gone
October is taking his stand. He is paving the way for winter Leaving his mark upon the land. He does his job so silently Splashing the woodlands with gold To be altered by ruthless ‘Ole Winter Who enters so careless and bold.
He will crinkle the leaves that you’ve colored
Causing a state of despair And cover the day with a blanket of gray Forgetting you ever were there.
But, although your radiant flame must die
And the delicate leaves do fall You’ve paved the way for snowflake days As winter drapes your shawl.
