I had to memorize this poem in 5th grade. I can still remember parts of it
35 years later. My 5th grade teacher passed away on 5/30/09 at 100 years
old. I immediately thought of this poem when I heard of her passing.

This poem is written with a lot of errors. It will make more sense if you
have the poem written correctly.
Here is how the poem is supposed to be written:

O hushed October morning mild,
Thy leaves have rippened to the fall;
Tomorrow's wind if it be wild,
should waste them all.
The crows above the forest call;
Tomorrow they may form and go.
O hushed October morning mild,
Begin the hours of this day slow.
Make the day seem to us less brief.
Hearts not averse to being beguiled,
Beguile us in the way you know.
Release on leaf at break of day;
At noon release another leaf;
One from our trees, one far away.
Retard the sun with gentle mist;
Enchant the land with amethyst.
Slow! Slow!
For the grapes sake, if they were all,
Whose leaves already burnt with frost,
Whose clustered fruit must else be lost-
For the grapes sake, along the wall
- Robert Frost

Now it should make more sense to you....

The poet says that the October morning is quiet and mild because of cold.
The leaves have ripened and may fall any time. If wind on the next day will
be strong, it might make the leaves fall and turn into waste. The crows
calling from the forest may gather themselves and move far from the chilly
weather. So, the poet urges the October morning to begin the day bit slowly
so that the day would seem bit longer. (In winter days are very brief). He
says that human beings are not opposed to be enchanted. So, the nature
should enchant them in its well known way. However, the poet urges nature
to release one ripened leaf at dawn, one at noon, one from their trees, one
from others. Finally, in the evening, when the sun is going to set, he
wishes that mist should slow down its journey and enchant the entire sky
with purple colour of amethyst.

“October gave a party; The leaves by hundreds came - The Chestnuts, Oaks,
and Maples, And leaves of every name. The Sunshine spread a carpet, And
everything was grand, Miss Weather led the dancing, Professor Wind the

We love this poem because we were both born in the fall and it brings back
good memories of that day.
