October. Now. the ripe October days, The parting of the verdant ways, To scenes of painted glory. And blending with the ruddy leaves, Fulfilled the summer’s glory. The bee. yet wings a shortened round. When late the golden rod is found, The frost has missed in falling. And now and then across the sky, A lone bird flits with pleading cry, His migrate fellows calling. At sunrise from the splendid hills. A magic breath invites, instills, A charm to nature’s lovers, To come and drink the soulful mood That Autumn spells within the wood.
