Bye bye October!

So, bye for now, October, it's ok to let you go
but you should know that this year - oh, I have enjoyed you so!

red and orange, gold and yellow
makes the hikes outside go mellow
it's like floating in a fairyland
a dreamy walk, hand in hand


October,
with sun and wind and rain
a month of autumn joy - and pain
and the golden beauty brings out a tear
- I do think of her who is no longer here


October is to hike to a foggy mountain top
to cover cold ears and to jump up and down non stop-
- the cold is coming, you feel it all over
but the sun is still warm and you don't want to cover-

your whole body with wool, no, no, no, it's too soon,
I need to feel warm while I glance at the moon
in the dark autumn night, while the stars shine above
then I go inside with the one that I love

October is candles and warm blankets too
a tight hug, a soft look -
- and just me and you


So, bye bye October, it's ok to let you go
with your soft autumn winds - oh, I loved you so

I enjoyed my hot coffee by the edge of the sea:

I sat under the gold - the most perfect place to be:

So, my October, what a joy that we met 
I say thank you for all the moments, it is time now to let-
you take off, but please know that I'm grateful and smile 
when I think of all good memories that you do leave behind

This moment is all we have.

  7. Dearest Eli,
    Loved this poetic way of biding adieu to October... You indeed have that orange and golden. We only can dream of that here in the southeast. But if we drive a bit to the north, we too can enjoy it!
    Sending you hugs and blessings for November,
    Mariette
