Today: Cloudy with light rain off and on and a high of 41F/5C. Lovely!
Boy, it's November weather today....I mentioned some time ago a poem about the autumn weather on the blogtalk show and have been meaning to post it. I love both the poem and the time of year it describes.
Anyway, today I'll post it along with a couple of cards from a Christmas themed swap I did. I'm busily trying to complete a few swaps I signed up for so that I can begin doing pear cards, which I love to do. I have a few trades pending, so I want to get them done as soon as I can.
I hope you enjoy the poem!
November - by Thomas Hood
No sun--no moon!
No morn--no noon!
No dawn--no dusk--no proper time of day--
No sky--no earthly view--
No distance looking blue--
No road--no street--
No "t'other side the way"--
No end to any Row--
No indications where the Crescents go--
No top to any steeple--
No recognitions of familiar people--
No courtesies for showing 'em--
No knowing 'em!
No mail--no post--
No news from any foreign coast--
No park--no ring--no afternoon gentility--
No company--no nobility--
No warmth, no cheerfulness, no healthful ease,
No comfortable feel in any member--
No shade, no shine, no butterflies, no bees,
No fruits, no flowers, no leaves, no birds,
