'I'm so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers'  This is my favorite time of the year.  

Glad October  (Tune: America The Beautiful)

Oh, beautiful the autumn time!

October days are here;

The trees in royal garments clad

Join in our songs of cheer.

The earth is holding festival

In colors bright and gay;

The world is like a picture fair

This glad October day.



Oh, autumn time, we welcome you

with songs of joyous cheer,

Remembering your colors bright

Throughout the whole glad year.


Oh, brightly now the fires gleam

Upon the hearth at night;

And gladly now we linger long

Around the home fires bright.

The hoarfrost gleams upon the vales

And Halloween draws nigh;

Oh, autumn time, we welcome you,

And hold your banners high.
