An October Morn

An October Morn

A Poem by Savannah Bly

It is about Robert Wood's painting 'October Morn'


An 'October Morn'

O, Robert Wood-your paintings are so beautiful.

Your vivid paintings and strokes bring out a scene

On your entire landscape

Your ‘October Morn’ is one of my favorites

The small glistening pond holds the red, yellow and brown

Crumpled and dried leaves that have fallen from the trees.

And the trees are so vivid and alive!

October is our family month-

There is so much emphasis on Halloween and my parent’s anniversary

O, sweet October, your smell reaches my nose whenever I think of you,

The seasons come and go with light and darkness


I morn that I don’t get to have you for as long as I want, back in Washington State we only had two seasons really, spring and fall.

October was one month full of memories yet I had your smell for half the year

That is why I morn October.

I used to have great evergreen trees, warm rainy weather that makes you smile, and crumpled leaves everywhere at all times.

'October Morn'

Your vivid strokes and textures of paint give way to the images of colored bushes and crumpled leaves on a glistening pond.

I keep you and Robert Wood with me,

I keep a little piece of my last homes with me

 of where I laid my head

I love you, your memories, and your vivid images that leap into a scene

Across the landscape and puts it in my view every time I think.

It's wonderful how this painting reminds you of your favorite time of year with your family. I'm sure Mr. Wood would be so happy to know how his painting has so positively affected you.
