There is wind where the rose was,
Cold rain where sweet grass was,
And clouds like sheep
Stream o'er the steep
Grey skies where the lark was.
Nought warm where your hand was,
Nought gold where your hair was,
But phantom, forlorn,
Beneath the thorn,
Your ghost where your face was.
Cold wind where your voice was,
Tears, tears where my heart was,
And ever with me,
Child, ever with me,
Silence where hope was.
November by Walter de la Mare
November only believes
In a pile of dead leaves
And a moon
That's the color of bone.
No prayers for November
To linger longer
November has tied me
To an old dead tree
Get word to April
To rescue me.
November's cold chain
Made of wet boots and rain
And shiny black ravens
On chimney smoke lanes
November seems odd
An act of God
Adapted from Tom Waits - November
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.
November by Elizabeth Coatsworth

And he sank into a reverie, which lasted a long time. Then, taking my sheep
out of his pocket, he buried himself in the contemplation of his treasure
