Emily on October

The morns are meeker than they were –
The nuts are getting brown –
The berry’s cheek is plumper –
The Rose is out of town.

The Maple wears a gayer scarf –
The field a scarlet gown –
Lest I should be old fashioned
I’ll put a trinket on.

Emily Dickinson c.1858

    I really like the new colors and everything!! The poem was very enjoyable too! I love the part about the maples putting on brighter scarves!!

    Love the new look. It goes well with this crisp seasonal weather we've been having.

    I like the new look! Very fall-ish.
