October Nights

“I'm so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers.”
L. M. Montgomery, Anne of Green Gables

The cool ocean-scented breeze blew gently
Leaves on trees whispered a sibilant hiss
In the clear starry sky, a sense heav’nly
Dog days gone as we welcome autumn bliss
Summer’s stifling heat just a memory
In the moonlit night, nothing seems amiss
Autumn scents, cinnamon and blue berry
Fill the air, delightful rapturous kiss
Alas! The pleasant days go by quickly
In the wintry cold these days we shall miss
Perhaps not of spring we will dream nightly
It’s cool October nights we’ll reminisce
