Enter October

Enter October (and Robert prompted it on the PA Forum under #152):

***

When I see October come
I smell family

Early dusk
Weekend baking
The chill and red outside the window
And coffee steaming warmth inside

When I see October come
My childhood hears my Mom
Making endless fuss
Over overspills of milk, or flour blasts
Around the oven

When I see October come
I get festive, high on Muses,
Over-caffed and over-sugared.
