There's nothing quite as right
As a loner in October
The chilly wind reflective of
The coldness of his insides
And the leaves, dropping off of twisted branches
Are a tribute to his solitude

We dress thicker in fall and winter
Our extra vestments create a shield
His posture is his armor
So he is right at home
The long shadows of evening
Make it easy for him to hide
As he careens between them

Everything's a little darker in October
Everything a little drier
A little grayer
A little more dead
A little more gone from this world

So he is right at home
