#PoeticThursday . . . Life’s worth living when we say, October!





“Crispy air and azure skies,
High above, a white cloud flies,
Bright as newly fallen snow.
Oh the joy to those who know October!
Colors bright on bush and tree.
Over the weedy swamp, we see
A veil of purple and brown and gold.
Thy beauty words have never told. October!
Scolding sparrows on the lawn,
Rabbits frisking home at dawn,
Pheasants midst the sheaves of grain,
All in harmony acclaim, October!
Brown earth freshly turned by plow,
Apples shine on bended bough,
Bins o’erflowed with oats and wheat,
And satisfaction reigns complete. October!
Radiant joy is everywhere.
Spirits in tune to the spicy air,
Thrill in the glory of each day.
Life’s worth living when we say, October!”

By Joseph Pullman Porter.

  1. The seasons never fail to surprise, it looks like it’s ageing, then a few months later, it’s all blooming again, the stuff we could learn from nature, you have to slow down before you start up, thanks for the post, great reminders, blessings
