The poem “October Nights” by Leah Barteldes is awesome. It is the best poem I have read in a long time. I liked it because it tells the truth instead of saying what she thinks the audience wants to hear. In other poems you hear how a first kiss is great but she tells what she thinks. I thought it was great how she left a word at the end each stanza. I thought it added a lot to the poem.
