October Party

From the Grand Forks Daily Herald, October 26, 1914.

October gave a party;
    The leaves by hundreds came—
The Ashes, Oaks and Maples
    And those of every name.
The sunshine spread a carpet,
    And everything was grand.
Miss Weather led the dancing,
    Professor Wind the band.

The Chestnut came in yellow,
    The Oaks in crimson dressed;
The lovely Misses Maple
    In scarlet looked the best,
And balanced all their partners,
    And gayly fluttered by;
The sight was like a rainbow
    New fallen from the sky.

Then, in the rustic hollows
    At “hide-and-seek” they played.
The party closed at sundown,
    And everybody stayed.
Professor Wind played louder;
    They flew along the ground,
And then the party ended
    In jolly “hands around.”
