A five-panel comic in sharpie and watercolor, with the title "Autumn" over the top. The first panel is of a maple tree with a scarf tied around its trunk, a halo of light behind it, and the text "The Maples wears a gayer scarf,". The second panel shows a red gown, haloed in light, laying on top of a field of grass, with the text "The field a scarlet gown." below. The third panel is a drawing of Emily Dickinson, with the text "Lest I should be old-fashioned," above. The fourth panel is a closer drawing of ED, wearing a crown haloed by light, and the text "I'll put a trinket on." above. The last panel is Emily, in her crown, seated between the field and the maple tree. She is saying "We look gooooood".

The words 'Emilytober' and '#artober' sit above a marker drawing of a mushroom with a red cap with white polkadots and a smile on its stalk, with a little elf dressed like Santa Clause watering it and a small red heart beside them. Below are the words 'Day 3: The mushroom is the elf of plants'

Poem Text

October 1st
Emilytober Day 1

The morns are meeker than they were –
The daylight leaves in good time –
The cool breeze is our chauffer —
The leaves fall on a dime.
The fondness is familiar –
The Earth’s special redesign –
And as the world configures –
So too will I.

-E.R.H.

 

October 2nd
Emilytober Day 2

Best Witchcraft is geometry
From the outside looking in –
Are intangible possibilities of –
Both wickedness and greatness.

-E.R.H.

The mermaids in the basement came out to look at me
