October's Bright Blue Weather

Today we were taking a walk in the park. The sky was very bright blue. Some trees have turned red, orange, yellow, and brown. The evergreen trees looked almost black compared to the bright colors of the other trees.

Days like this make me think of a poem I had to memorize in elementary school. Here is the first verse:
"O suns and skies and clouds of June,
And flowers of June together,
Ye cannot rival for one hour
October's bright blue weather."
A poet named Helen Hunt Jackson wrote this poem over 100 years ago, so it was already an old poem when I memorized it. It ends:
"O suns and skies and flowers of June,
Count all your boasts together,
Love loveth best of all the year
October's bright blue weather."

NOTE: I didn't remember the poem that I quoted. I looked it up when I wanted to write about it!
