And, November Comes....


November comes
and November goes
with the last red berries
and the first white snows.
With night coming early
and dawn coming late
and ice in the bucket
and frost by the gate.
The fires burn
and the kettles sing
and earth sinks to rest
until next spring.
Elizabeth Coatsworth

  3. The poem and the pictures go so well together. I'm with the person who asked where October went. While they're at it, I hope they locate September too.

  5. Great poem. Wonderful way to capture what we're all feeling.

    And I'm willing to chip in on a "finder's fee" for October and September...

  19. Found your blog via J on tour - the name caught my eye - small town. We don't even live in a small town, but outside the outskirts of a small village - doesn't get small than that.

    Read through a number of your posts and liked them very much, along with your wonderful photos.

  21. We finally had some fall weather settle in here in my part of Texas. I am so excited, I wanted my husband to go chop down a tree so we could light a fire. We would have sweat in the house, but it would so be worth it. Yeah, fall!
