October's Party

  &   | February 02,2013 11:44 am IST

 

   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.
 
   The Chestnuts came in yellow,
   The Oaks in crimson dressed;
   The lovely Misses Maple
   In scarlet looked their best;

                  All balanced to their partners,
                  And gaily fluttered by;
                  The sight was like a rainbow
                  New fallen from the sky.
 
   Then, in the rustic hollow,
   At hide-and-seek they played,
   The party closed at sundown,
   And everybody stayed.

               Professor Wind played louder;
               They flew along the ground;
               And then the party ended
               In jolly "hands around".
