October is the "opal month,"

the jewel of the year.

Now flaming sunsets, skies so blue,

and gorgeous leaves appear.

The tints and shades of color bright,

all red and gold and green,

And loaded wagons from the farms

with yellow corn are seen.

The Master's hand is shown this month

in colors rich and rare;

No painter ever vied with Him;

none with Him can compare.

"He has made everything beautiful in its time." Ecclesiastes 3:11

Poem taken from The Finch First Reader by Adelaide Victoria Finch

How true this poem is, about opals. I love your little image of the cute little boy and girl at the top of it. I also think Opal is a beautiful name for a girl, but sadly, the gemstone names (Ruby, Pearl, Opal, Garnet), have fallen out of fashion. If only some of the gazillion babies being named "Emily" these days could instead take the fine old name of one of the gemstones.
