NOVEMBER


Here we go again....The first day, of a new month.  I put it down to old age, that time seems to fly by faster.  I just got used to October and now it is November.  I guess we will just have to live with it!






A CHILD'S CALENDAR


THE STRIPED AND SHAPELY
MAPLE GRIEVES
THE GHOST OF HER
DEPARTED LEAVES.

THE GROUND IS HARD,
AS  HARD AS STONE.
THE YEAR IS OLD,
THE BIRDS ARE FLOWN.

AND YET THE WORLD,
IN ITS DISTRESS,
DISPLAYS A CERTAIN
LOVELINESS.

  1. I know. The year is flying by. I think it builds up speed from about October on as well. Sigh.
