thoughts on october

on octoberO hushed October morning mild,
Thy leaves have ripened to the fall;
To-morrow’s wind, if it be wild,
Should waste them all.
The crows above the forest call;
To-morrow they may form and go.
O hushed October morning mild,
Begin the hours of this day slow,
Make the day seem to us less brief.
~ October by Robert Frost

  1. Thanks for the poem and the beautiful images.

    We’ve had a lot of clear bright weather here and the poem I keep thinking of is one we learned in school when I was a kid (not such a good poem as Frost’s, though:))

    Helen Hunt Jackson (1830-1885)
    October’s Bright Blue Weather

    O SUNS and skies and clouds of June,
    And flowers of June together,
    Ye cannot rival for one hour
    October’s bright blue weather;

    (And on and on for a few more stanzas, but you get the idea)

    1. How beautiful! Thank you for sharing and the kind words on my photos.
