Moondance

Well, it’s a marvelous night for a moondance
With the stars up above in your eyes
A fantabulous night to make romance
’Neath the cover of October skies
And all the leaves on the trees are falling
To the sound of the breezes that blow
And I’m trying to please to the calling
Of your heartstrings that play soft and low…
~Van Morrison, “Moondance,” recorded 1969

October

October is the month for painted leaves…. As fruits and leaves and the day itself acquire a bright tint just before they fall, so the year near its setting. October is its sunset sky; November the later twilight. ~Henry David Thoreau, “Autumnal Tints”

Where Did Summer Go

The calendar that is hanging
on the says, that today’s date
is June 28, 2015.
Well, with the current temperature
of 52 F, at 8:52 pm, feels more
like October, not the early
part of summer.

Did I mention that it rained and
also windy for most of the day?
It did.
