I'm not a Southern Beauty,
I'm not an Eastern rose;
I'm just a lil' Western Gal
With freckles on her nose.

Autumn Poem by George Cooper

I really like many of the old-fashioned poems. Just pretty or lighthearted poems.

This one is called "October's Party," and it is very gladsome. I like the capitalization of the tree names. 

But let us not delve into why I am putting up an October poem in September. Let me just say that it is a personal triumph to be able to post anything, and that also my brains are addled by placing thousands of Hallowe'en cards up in stores.

    Don't worry. It'll be here apparently before we even realize it. Thanks for the laugh today - I needed that!

  • MISS PEACH ~(^.^)~

    I love your posting today Holly!
    This is one of my favorites....enjoy it!

    Come, little leaves,
    Said the wind one day;
    Come to the meadows
    With me and play.
    Put on your dresses
    Of red and gold;
    For summer is past,
    And the days grow cold.

    Soon as the leaves
    Heard the wind's loud call,
    Down they came fluttering,
    One and all.
    Over the meadows
    They danced and flew,
    All singing the soft
    Little songs they knew.

    Dancing and flying,
    The leaves went along,
    Till Winter called them
    To end their sweet song.
    Soon, fast asleep
    In their earthy beds,
    The snow lay a coverlet
    O'er their heads.

    our weather is a little weird right can't decide if its summer or fall so we are telling it, its the poems....

  • Amrita

    Oh I want Oct. to arrive quicker now, after reading that poem. Oct. is a harbinger of cooler weather.

    Today we had some more rain, so the evening 's cool. And today is Abner 's 9th birthday. I calle d him up.

    He was having a children 's party for his friends and later on dinner (deeener, he says) with the family, cuz and grandparents etc. His Ma bought him an electric train.

    Really love your poem, just perfect for the fall as it creeps into our lives! Just noticed this morning how dark it is now when I get up - and it was just a month ago that the sun was up at 5:30am!
