Adieu to October 2018 By Polly Guerin

October'a crisp breeze announced fall 
Life began anew with no time to stall

The frost was surely on the pumpkin
Those frigid days were really somethin'

October gave a splendid scenic party
Leaves by hundreds soon departing

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

Leaves carpeting the woodland's open door

Led to fun adventures in the great outdoors   

Apple picking in the orchard on a farm
Made apple cider libations mild and calm

Fireside chats wearing warm chunky sweaters
Hot chocolate, cozy socks what could be better? 

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

All Hallows Eve was a magical velvet night
Scary costumes made us flinch with fright

But it was fun all through the party light
When make believe brought wonder flight

Then a whipping wind furled October away
Quite frankly, I'm rather sad she did not stay

But left abruptly, didn't linger, I wonder why
I can't hold onto October, no matter how I try.
