October is a crayon box
when seen through a child’s eyes.

all the cleanest colors:
clear blue for the sky,
red and yellow for the leaves.

And for the pines,
the brightest green.

A child’s drawing
carried home with pride
to pin on the wall,

or place in a box
the better to recall

the time,
the crayons,
the child.
