GARDEN BLOGGERS' MUSE DAY



OCTOBER

O hushed October morning mild
Thy leaves have ripened to the fall;
Tomorrow's wind, if it be wild,
should waste them all.

The crows above the forest call;
Tomorrow 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 from far away.

-Robert Frost

  1. Robert Frost is very apt for October (Frost/1st frost). ;) That's an appropriately moody poem, good choice. I posted something for Muse Day.

  4. I've got my muse up too...not a long one as I am still not up to par. Love your poem!

  5. This is lovely. Frost is one of my favorite authors, particularly for nature related poetry.

    I'd like to join in the Garden Blogger's Muse Day postings if I could -- I'm a little late, but have posted a wonderfully illustrative passage by Gladys Taber (with photo) on my site. :)
