October

The forest holds high carnival to-day,
  And every hill-side glows with gold and fire;
Ivy and sumac dress in colors gay,
  And oak and maple mask in bright attire.

The hoarded wealth of sober autumn days
  In lavish mood for motley garb is spent,
And nature for the while at folly plays,
  Knowing the morrow brings a snowy Lent.
