October is the warmest month

"April is the cruelest month, breeding
Lilacs out of the dead land, mixing

Earth in forgetful snow, feeding
A little life with dried tubers.

The only piece of news that I anticipate the whole year is the news of the first snow fall of the season. This year, I did not have to wait October for it. I can already feel the itch at the bottom of my feet, where my skies belong...
