It Was One of Those Fine October Days

It was one of those fine October days

free from summer's heat and haze

but not yet gripped by autumn chill.

It was one of those fine October days

when the sky's so clear

you can see the moon

through the atmosphere

at midday.

It was one of those fine October days

when the trees sport yellow and red

instead of everyday summer green.

It was one of those fine October days

when one draws a deep breath

and is grateful

to be resident on Earth.

As good as it can get describing today, except for the moon which is not around. Thanks.

That is such a lovely poem about a "fine" October day. I "shared" it with others.
Thanks for posting.

YES!!!! This is exactly what today was like in the Mid-Atlantic region--absolutely beautiful: clear blue sky, brilliant sunshine with not even a little puffy cloud, a gentle breeze, and the high temp. was 71 degrees. After 21 out of the last 30 days being cloudy, showery, and/or rainy, this was truly a blessing. And the weather guys says it will stay like this thru the weekend. Hallelujah!
