Halloween Countdown Day 2: Unseasonable


A sudden warm spell has me confused

With the leaves already changing color

Too warm today for yesterday’s flannel

Sun bright and cheery clouds in the sky

October is usually not quite this warm

Most often the autumn air is much cooler

Not the basking warmth I’m feeling today

What they used to call “Indian Summer”

Still, I don’t really mind the lingering warmth

Before the colorful leaves start turning brown

And fall down to cover the once-warm ground
