Autumn scent

October 1st, 2013

October gave a party;

The leaves by hundreds came,—

The Ashes, Oaks, and Maples,

And leaves of every name.

The sunshine spread a carpet,

And every thing was grand;

Miss Weather led the dancing;

Professor Wind, the band….

The sight was like a rainbow

New-fallen from the sky….

~George Cooper, “October’s Party”
