O hushed October morning mild,
Thy leaves have ripened to the fall;
To-morrow's wind, if it be wild,
Should waste them all.
The crows above the forest call;
To-morrow they may form and go.
O hushed October morning mild,
Begin the hours of this day slow,
Make the day seem to us less brief.
Hearts not averse to being beguiled,
Beguile us in the way you know;
Release one leaf at break of day;
At noon release another leaf;
One from our trees, one far away;
Retard the sun with gentle mist;
Enchant the land with amethyst.
Slow, slow!
For the grapes' sake, if they were all,
Whose leaves already are burnt with frost,
Whose clustered fruit must else be lost�
For the grapes' sake along the wall

October by Robert Frost

Thanks for all the great autumn weather poems. They fit our weather exactly, but I wished a "rain" poem would work right now.

This was a lovely week of quotes, bringing to mind the best of Autumn and of October. A lot of thought went into the selection, thank you for what surely was a labor of love.
