The Love of October

 

I get excited at this time of year

A bit of October chill in the air 

Colored leaves bounce with a flare

Tents going up for the country fair

 

Crisp brown leaves crunching under my feet

Huge bales of  hay resting in the fields

Corn stalks gathered round and tied neat

Bushel baskets of corn they do yield

 

Pumpkins and apples at roadside stands

Jars of blackberry and strawberry jams

Buckets of blueberries picked for pies

Leaving shrubs and bushes barren and dry


Jugs of apple cider brewed ever so sweet

Time for hot coco and marshmellow treat

Bring out the wool hats and wool sweaters

All these gifts from God, life couldn’t be better
