October is the treasurer of the year,
And all the months pay bounty to her store;
The fields and orchards still their tribute bear,

    That is the most stunning seasonal poem ever- it is sad to see he only lived 34 years- we could have had even more poetry of his to read. Every line is full of beauty- every line is full of human comparison.

    She only sees above a shining sky! With the muse of love and peace. Nice work.

    October is compared to a beautiful girl- -her beauty in full colors and how she lives her life full with joy without caring that her beauty will pass away.In the words of poet
    -She lives her life out joyously
    Nor cares when Frost stalks o'er her way
    And turns her auburn locks to gray '- - Life's philosophy so beautifully expressed.
