Subject(s): October


October rears an altar on the hills,
And lights her sumac tapers at the shrine;
We bow in adoration for this gift:
Enchanting colors, crimson as old wine.

She flings frost crystals on the starry night;
The sound of honking geese rings down the sky;
Through quiet Indian summer dreamy days,
Her cavalcade of wind-blown leaves sweeps by.
