Bittersweet October.

The mellow, messy, leaf-kicking, perfect

pause between the opposing miseries

of summer and winter.

~Carol Bishop Hipps

October's poplars are flaming

torches lighting the way to Winter. 

~Nova Bair

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 led the band.
~George Cooper
