Bright October

Bright October

I know no other season
So filled with warmth and cheer
As on these bright October days
When autumn time is here.

The hills have turned from summer’s green
To dazzling red and gold;
The flower beds and brighter, too,
So festive to behold!

The harvest yield is gathered in;
God sends His gifts anew.
Each roadside stand, a harvest fair
That warms the heart of you.

A bluish haze on distant hills,
The maple’s scarlet flame;
And oak trees dressed in Joseph-coats
Stands guard along the lane.

Of all the seasons of the year,
Each one with beauty blessed,
I hold to Autumn’s warmth and cheer–
I like October best!
Poet, Kay Hoffman
