October Morning Mild

Last month was so very busy.
It is so nice to slow down and take time to enjoy this beautiful season.
Today was one of those days that left me feeling so content.
The girls and I went for a long walk after school.
It was so peaceful and perfect.
And exactly what we needed.

 O hushed October morning mild, 
Thy leaves have ripened to the fall; 
To-morrow's wind, if it be wild, 
Should waste them all. 
The crows above the forest call; 
To-morrow they may form and go. 
O hushed October morning mild, 
Begin the hours of this day slow, 
Make the day seem to us less brief. 
Hearts not averse to being beguiled, 
Beguile us in the way you know; 
Release one leaf at break of day; 
At noon release another leaf; 
One from our trees, one far away; 
Retard the sun with gentle mist; 
Enchant the land with amethyst. 
Slow, slow!
