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!
