This cold and gloom of November--
And yet, it could well be December--
In perhaps the right year.
But no, there's a Tone in November,
A quiet inner view--
With an inner accounting,
And Light that transpects
To the New.
Author's Note: My birthday too often falls on Thanksgiving.

Wonderful! I love November...seasonal poems. I recently posted one also, in my This, That... collection. November definitely has an energy all its own, and you've aptly captured it in your choice of vocabulary...imagery.
