Fall Tour of Iowa: Subtleties

"October's Party"

October gave a party;
The leaves by hundreds came, --
The Ashes, Oaks and Maples,
And leaves of every name.

The sunshine spread a carpet,
And everything was grand;
Miss Weather led the dancing;
Professor Wind, the band....
The sight was like a rainbow
New-fallen from the sky....
