Happy October Everyone!

Let the countdown begin!

I've found a delightful poem to share with all of you about this happy, glorious month!

It Must Be October by Pearl N. Sorrels
The harvest moon hangs round and high
It dodges clouds high in the sky
The stars wink down their love and mirth
The Autumn seasons is giving birth
Oh it must be October
The leaves of red bright gold and brown
To Mother earth come tumbling down
The breezy nights the ghostly sights
The eerie spooky far off sounds
Are signs that its October
The pumpkin yellow big and round
Are carried by costumed clumsy clowns
Its Halloween lets celebrate
Come one come all and don't be late
We know now its October
We'll roast and toast some luscious food
For apples we'll be bobbin
While tales are told around the fire
Of timely ghosts and goblins
Oh how we love October
The moon has grown pale
The stars have grown dim
Our Halloween party is over
With a hi-de-ho homeward we'll go
What a delightful month October

On a more serious note, I'd like to remind everyone that October is also Domestic Violence Awareness Month. For help and information, please click here. Help spread the word, please feel free to add either of these to your blogs:
