Poems for October Transcript

Since this past spring, we’ve been fortunate to have William Jay Smith as our poet in residence to take us around the year with poetry. Here are two of his poems that evoke October, the first about someone who might be met on Halloween, and the second about someone who’s right at home in this month’s lengthening nights. They’re both from a recording of his poetry that was made in the late 1950s.
