October’s Wiles

She’s an earthy lass
With curvaceous hips,
Nutty skin, berry lips
And a hint of sass.
Ripe as autumn fruit
With a trace of frosty rime,
She’ll seduce you every time
She comes around.
A flick of russet
And rouge smear of sunset,
Bits of leaves in her hair,
You’ll find her everywhere.

For this Weekend Mini-Challenge, Magaly has invited you to turn October into a poem.
