October’s Party

3 Oct


by George Cooper

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.”

    Tami- I would love to be able to make bonnets for my girls, but I got this from the homeschool convention two years ago. The company’s website is:


    Do you sew bonnets?

    Flo, I suppose I could, if I had a pattern. They are just so cute. Maybe I will try the library for a book on making them. Blessings to you, Tami
