Scarlet Ball

"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."

~ October's Party, George Cooper.

What a wonderful poem -- and what a great picture of the beautiful trees.

October is giving us a Party for sure, Jo... We have some pretty colors up here.

BUT---all of the rains today (except for just a trace) missed us totally.... Darn!!!!

Maybe we'll get some tomorrow..

That red autumn is really beautiful.

Our leaves are so slow in changing this year and I haven't found a single green acorn. The longer Autumn hangs on, the better. Love it and the poem.

So beautiful, and so fleeting!

Lovely tree! We have Black Gum trees turning their deep red, Oaks and Maples turning fire-red and orange, all against a green backdrop of leaves or evergreens. It's glorious as is the tree in your picture.

Love the happy picture painted by the poem.
