OCTOBER MOON
Poetry by M. Linda Steffey

Red berries
On the Dogwood tree
And leaves golden turn
October moon gives quiet glow
Sun rays no longer burn..
Still days crisp and cool
The leaves come drifting down
Across the moon's glowing face
Geese skeins..their honking sound;

Brown stalks of corn
'Neath hazy moon
Hot chocolate by the fire
White breath against chill of night
Warm blankets when you retire
To smell the pumpkin pies that bake
The apples and the yams
Soon to have the corn roast
Yeast rolls...family clans..

O how I love the Autumn days
Before the winter skies
The crunch of leaves 'neath your feet
Soon covered when snow flies..
Clear rosey dawns begin the days
And sweaters take the chill
Bright leaves and pumpkins
Squash and corn
Moonbeams on my windowsill....
