Tricky Miss Arveson

IT WAS IN THE NINTH GRADE THAT OUR TEACHER MISS ARVESON played a trick on us.  She taught us “October’s Bright Blue Weather,” and told the class we would forget it.  I resisted  looking it up  for this post, so I’ll just share what I do recall:

 

OCTOBER’S BRIGHT BLUE WEATHER

goldtree

 O suns and skies and flowers of June,

and ______ of June together,

you cannot rival for one hour

October’s bright blue weather.

 

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                       _________________________

          Now I look it up:

 Oh suns and skies and clouds of June,

and flowers of June together,

you cannot rival for one hour

October’s bright blue weather.

About Nan Mykel

At 79, I was just about to stop keeping a journal, but that felt like accepting that growth was finished. I don't want to be finished, yet! I'm 80 now, and struggling to communicate with you, if you'll come and set awhile. P.S. My how time flies! I'm 82 now.
