Adieu to OCTOBER By Polly Guerin

I am so glad that I live in a world
Where we have October to unfurl 

It was warm and cold, no rehearsal
Those autumn days, so controversial

Then the frost was on the pumpkin
A frigid winter day was somethin'

Autumn finally raised its sunny smile 
And sterling days lingered for a while

Forget not, the golden kisses of the breeze
Warmed our hearts even before the freeze

The ashes, oaks an maples were the same
And to the party leaves by hundreds came

Wine-red and golden bronze on the vine
The spectacular autumn show was divine

The hardy sparrows took a backward glance
Stayed on and on through the rainy dance

All Hallows Eve was a magical velvet night
With orange, gold and black, quite a sight

An star-diamonds fell from the night sky
As we dreamt of holidays in the festive pie

Pumpkin everywhere and pumpkin ice cream
Celebrating Indian summer, a mellow dream

Then October extinguished itself without fanfare
But, Autumn is my favorite season, I do declare!
