these are the days:

days of
frosty mornings 
harvest home
hayrides at night
fireplace and bonfire burning bright
welcoming scarecrows
pumpkins on a porch
leaves for raking 
maple syrup on warm pancakes
mugs of mellow cider
caramel apples for a special treat 
wood smoke haze hanging in the air
cozy woolens, sweaters and jackets brought out once again
costume creativity for mom and the kids
warm homemade donuts for neighborhood sharing
glowing jack-o'-lantern all in a row
spooks and ghouls and tricks and treats
