Someone Came Knocking . . . Oh it's October!

From Poems for Boys and Girls (1945) compiled by Marjorie Barrows and illustrated by Lois Maloy.




Front porch on a fall afternoon





Late fall corn field

October you are a very fun month! The ultimate master of the costume change, you start out with glorious fall colors draping the landscape from the top of the trees to the pumpkin laden front porches! The brightly colored leaves are scattered across the lawns like confetti. Then suddenly when the leaves are gone, you have changed to a minimalistic palette of more subdued grays and brown. October you then cap it all off with a fantastic party called Halloween! Oh yes, you came knocking and we answered!

  7. Diane, the poem is gorgeous but that owl is the cuttest, most cuddly thing in the world (never thought I would call an owl cuddly)!

  8. Thanks for stopping by, yes that owl is the cutest! If I suddenly disappear it is because they are working on streets in our area, for some reason internet service has been off and on today!
