Orange pumpkins, leaves of red, and gold, cool mornings, the
Month of color, month of Beauty, month of joy!
Exuberant October we welcome you!
You call us outdoors to be with you, and to store your
Warmth within us for too soon, we know, colder days will come.
We will feel sadness at your passing, but we will have hope
and faith, for once again, the trees have set their buds
