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,
