October is the month of zeal,
Autumn’s here. Time for the chill.
Leaves of green, burnt orange and gold.
Put in piles; bagged with a fold.
Trees left bare for a season.
Cold weather is the reason.
Time for sweaters and those coats.
Socks, gloves, umbrellas in totes.
Dark comes early; shorter days.
Having a hat truly pays!
Weather changes on the way,
Mother Nature has her say!
