The Leaves of October

Oh, I want to dance with the leaves of October

That merrily twirl in the air,

To blend with the yellow, the reds, and the golds of them.

To dance in the wind without care.

And I want to run in the warm Autumn sun,

Skip under the azure blue sky,

To drift with the breeze among billowing leaves,

Rejoicing that I am alive.

So let me forget the cold chill of November

While October still is with me.

Too soon come the rains and the long, dreary winter nights,

Too quickly laid barren the trees.

Oh, I want to dance with the leaves of October

Before summer’s warmth must depart.

Lord, let me lay hold of their red, brown, green, gold

And treasure their dance in my heart.

Kathryn E. Darden

my children enjoying autumn

under the autumn sun

October leaves

almost barren trees

red, gold, brown and green

treasure their dance in my heart

thank you God, for all the beauty in this life!
