Let’s live like Wisconsin in October
and let the sun light us with unabashed glee
even as winter looms.
Let’s wink and shimmy our russet leaves,
hoist them high and proud and then
let them fall without regret.
Let’s keep our rustic roads all spruced up
so they’re always ready
to welcome wanderers.
And, when night falls too soon,
let’s end our day
with a glorious sunset
the harvest moon.
