October Mist

October mist still thrills me every year

mysterious, chill mornings promise hope

the sun may soon prevail, the fog might clear

displaying Autumn’s bright kaleidoscope.

 

Mysterious, chill mornings promise hope

a sweeter morn behind the curtain lies

for lingering lily, hardy heliotrope.

The greedy, needy flora all will pray

 

the sun will soon prevail, the fog will clear.

The cold, damp interloper forced to flee

as all Creation shares a silent cheer

will slink away to plot new anarchy.

 

Displaying Autumn’s bright kaleidoscope

from earth to sky abundant, tier on tier

dawn proudly sheds her crepuscular cope.

October mist still thrills me every year.
