    The more I read of Helen Hunt, the more I fall in love with her subtle and beauteous verses... they seem dipped in honey and scented with the fragrance of a million blooms. They inspire me to read, to write and to think of this world and beyond... (Report) Reply

    Helen's poem makes me wish I could take a walk with her to embrace these sights, as a second choice a walk with William Wordsworth would do. Something is definitely missing in modern city sidewalks. (Report) Reply

    Dawn Fuzan,
    Helen died in 1885. I don't think she can keep it up much longer.
    I do like this poem, however. My wife and I were both born in October and so was one of our daughters. We all love that month.

    Like Lorna, I learned this poem in the 4th or fifth grade. It has annually enriched my life I am now 82. (Report) Reply

    We were required to learn and then recite this poem back in elementary school-that is some 70 years ago and i still think of it every year when October comes around and the air is so crisp and exhilerating. (Report) Reply
