October gave a party;
The leaves by hundreds came,—
The Ashes, Oaks, and Maples,
And leaves of every name.
The sunshine spread a carpet,
And every thing was grand;
Miss Weather led the dancing;
Professor Wind, the band....
The sight was like a rainbow
New-fallen from the sky....
~George Cooper, "October’s Party"
This month’s assignment was difficult for me until something clicked. October’s Party.. hmmm… What better party in October than the annual vampyre celebration, The Endless Night? This poem has been interpreted by me through pics of my previous years at the NYC Endless night. It is usually held the first weekend in October. The ones I have pictured were taken at Drom and outside of Drom.
Strangely, I’m not finding any info on this year’s event. I wasn’t going to attend anyways because I have a newborn at home. Still, I would have liked to include info about this year's event. The big Vampire Ball in New Orleans looks like it’s going to AMAZING. You can find out more here. NOLA is the place to be this year. The Vampire Lestat Ball will be awesome because it will coincide with the release of the latest, and long awaited, installment of the Vampire Chronicles, The Prince Lestat. Anne Rice will be there. Two huge parties in one place. I wish I could be there.
Ah well, there’s always another time. Until then, here are fond memories of my favorite October Party…
