"October gave a party;
The leaves by hundreds came-
The chestnuts, Oaks, and Maples
And leaves of every name.
The Sunshine spread a carpet,
And everything was grand,
Miss weather led the dancing,
Professor wind the band."
"From ghoulies and ghosties and long leggety beasties and things that go bump in the night. Good Lord, deliver us!"
"Every leaf speaks bliss to me,
Fluttering from the Autumn tree."
"Autumn is a second spring where every leaf is a flower."
"October is a symphony of permanence and change."
Bonaro W. Overstreet
