Awakened by the sound of a gentle rain
The October day begins with an
The autumn colors of the trees
Makes the landscape seem to be
A watercolor painting of a
Painter with exquisite skill.
The gentle rain freshens the air.
Cool and gentle is the day, it is
A day that rewards you with a sleepy
Silence and beckons you to stay
Inside and simply enjoy the fact
It is October.
