The Orange Lady



Oh, October!
You put on a show
dancing over the mountaintops
dressed in bright garments
of orange, lemon, and cranberry grape.

Oh, October!
You are a sassy month,
stopping carloads of folks
flocking to view the fall foliage;
you twist, turn, and somersault
with rain showers of leaves.

Oh, October!
You are a naughty child!
On Halloween you deck
out in spooky costumes,
and trick-or-treat
throughout the eerie night;
the barn owl resounding,
Hoot!  Hoot!  Hoot!
             --Brenda Kay Ledford

Some call it autumn, others call it God!

Wishing my blogger friends a very happy and beautiful fall.

Brenda Kay, you delight me with words that only you can make possible. I see it for the first time as you've described the picture in "The Orange Lady". I feel as if my eyes have been opened!

I really like your descriptive poetry! There isn't a lot of fall color here yet. Maybe it will come after the cooler weather predicted for this week.
