First October

Callooh! Callay! Oh, dismal day!
Seven months till First of May.
Pavilions close, and ladies dress,
and these and other signs distress
those who’ll bring the winter through
with colds and rain and carrot stew.
My heart goes out to soothe their pain
but my boots have turned their toes toward Spain.
