October poem~




Crispy air and azure skies,
High above, a white cloud flies,
Bright as newly fallen snow.
Oh the joy to those who know, October!

Colors bright on bush and tree.
Over the weedy swamp, we see
A veil of purple and brown and gold.
Thy beauty words have never told. October!

Scolding sparrows on the lawn,
Rabbits frisking home at dawn,
Pheasants midst the sheaves of grain,
All in harmony acclaim, October!

Brown earth freshly turned by plow,
Apples shine on bended bough,
Bins o'erflowed with oats and wheat,
And satisfaction reigns complete. October!

Radiant joy is everywhere.
Spirits in tune to the spicy air,
Thrill in the glory of each day.
Life's worth living when we say, October!

~by Joseph Porter



This truly has been a lovely October day. I praise God for the beauty of it all. :)

Dear Cora,
I praise the Lord for His Beauties too. :) Jesus is a Wonderful Savior, and Friend. Yesterday was a delightful Sunday for me and my family. The Lord really blessed me.
