November




Remember
November,
It comes after October
and before December.
.
November's air is cold,
November's turkey crispy and golden,
November's age is 11 month old,
November's garden frosty and forgotten.
.
November is the time
Echoes of wind make haunting sound,
November is the time
Brown leaves hit the ground.
.
November is the time
first snowfall gives its blow,
November is the time
Bare boughs rub to and fro.
.
What I like about November
is the smell of hot tea,
The warmth of thankful notes between you and me,
And the enthusiasm floating in the air cheerfully.
