Good Company

Good Company

When other flowers
Have gone away,
The goldenrod
And asters stay.

The asters with
Their purple blooms,
The goldenrod
In yellow plumes

Linger, though
The others flee,
And keep
October company.

~ Author unknown

The idea of the goldenrod and asters keeping October company makes me smile. :) I love to see them, too, their bright blooms adding color to the autumn scenery. I like the rhymes in this poem and the word "linger". What do you think of the poem?
