Winter Approaches…..

Misty

A November Dawn…

Autumn was a long time in arriving here in middle England. But once it had arrived its been rather terrific, but now we have the first signs of November…..  as its the 22nd of the month that cannot be to bad.

Earlier in the month I was trolling through some old books on the seasons and came across this little poem. It was obviously written some time ago before climate change started to push back the seasons, when November was rather sever.  No doubt it was once a familiar catalogue of occurrences but November this year has so far been very different

No Warmth, no Cheerfulness, no Healthy Ease

No Comfortable feel in the member,

No Shade, no Shine, no Butterflies, no Bees,

No Fruits, no Flowers, no Leaves, no Birds

NO-vember

Thomas Hood 

(1799 – 1845)
