Here is one of my favourite fall poems to share with you. Enjoy and have a wonderful fullfilling day!!

October's Party

October gave a party;
The leaves by hundreds came.
The Chestnuts, Oaks and Maples
and leaves of every name.

The sunshine spread a carpet,
and everything was grand.
Miss Weather led the dancing,
Professor Wind the band.

The Chestnuts came in yellow
The Oaks in crimson dressed.
The lovely Misses Maple
In scarlet looked their best.

All balanced to their partners,
And gairly fluttered by;
The sight was like a rainbow
New falled from the sky.

Then in the rustic hollow
At hide-and-seek they played;
the party closed at sundown
And everybody stayed.

Professor Wind played louder,
They flew along the ground.
And then the party ended
In jolly "hands around".

George Cooper "October's Party"

I've never seen this one before. I love it. This time of year with the music of the wind and the color dancing all around is my favorite season. I'm going to print off this poem and stick it in my journal.
Thanks for sharing!
