Poem by Poet Hound

October’s Embrace

October girls are not obscured in costume,
they are lit from within
like carved pumpkins
delighted to behold bold colors
of autumn forests,
crackling leaves
under every footstep
when the air is becoming
as crisp as their voice
commanding attention
and a foothold
on your heart.
Do not deny her the pleasure
of shaking your hand
or warming you with an embrace
that melts the surliest of souls.
October girls are confident,
clever, and kind
with a pinky-swearing ability
to never let a friend down.
Preserve such a girl,
keep her close,
for if you are lucky
she will prepare you a toast.

Thanks for reading my poem, please stop in tomorrow for another Open Submissions!
