'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.

 

Chorus—-

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.
