October

October

A Poem by emipoemi

Ten months into a year, the trees,

By gradual abscissions, shed

Their leaves- by now turned gold and red-

Which spurs a crimson tide to spread

Blessed by the sun, low overhead

To thread the Autumn days with ease.

 

Alluring beauty lies around

’Twixt earth and sky and shining sea,

And through the month casts ceaselessly

A spell of soft tranquility,

Which merely hovers easily

Above the world deprived of sound.

 

Although the cold begins to roam

With breaths that sting the fair terrain;

Although the drops pouring rain

May add to all the given pain-

Know nothing in the world can stain

The quality that charms our home.

 

And all about the peaceful scene

A surging scent starts to pervade

Through day, through night, most loath to fade,

Thus none can in the least evade

The pumpkin, leaf, and raindrop made

Perfume- the smell of Halloween.

I've been watching blue jays in the changing leaves the last few days and the wonderful contrast of the blue on yellow and orange. I'll be thinking of this poem as I do so tomorrow. This piece describes October in Canada Beautifully. Fantastic writing.
