October--the first spring month*

"There is no season when such pleasant and sunny spots may be lighted on, and produce so pleasant an effect on the feelings, as now in October."
-Nathaniel Hawthorne

October's the month
When the smallest breeze
Gives us a shower
Of autumn leaves.
Bonfires and pumpkins,
Leaves sailing down -
October is red
And golden and brown.

6:30 AM, October 1
downtown Nacogdoches, 55° (like it should be!)

*"You ought to know that October is the first Spring month."
- Karel Capek
