October was two years ago.
Almost all autumn this year was warm. Sky was as bright as it was in summer, and foliage was a bit burnt yet alive. It wasn’t gold, it was bright green. It was like August never left them.
They could easily change their colours and become red and orange. Only they didn’t want to, because they loved sun. They loved how it sends its rays to them, how it gently plays with them, and so they tricked sun and made it believe it is still summer here on earth.
But sun wasn’t the one who was tricked by leaves. All creatures also were fooled and sang their songs all September, October and even partly November. Sometimes fresh wind tried to reason with them, but no one heard him. Everything was fascinated with sun, and when cold days finally came, they were nothing but the greatest surprise for everybody.
