November Lives Up To Her Reputation

"November comes 
And November goes, 
With the last red berries 
And the first white snows.

With night coming early, 
And dawn coming late, 
And ice in the bucket 
And frost by the gate.

The fires burn 
And the kettles sing, 
And earth sinks to rest 
Until next spring."
- Elizabeth Coatsworth

How's it looking where you are? 


  1. I got the same damn white stuff at my place. My Rare One is getting out the snowblower.

  2. I have the same poem on my blog today. You know what they say...great minds and all that... :)

    You have snow?? Nooooo.... We haven't seen the sun for a few days, but there's no snow yet. I don't want it arriving so soon!!

  3. Loved the poem. The only white stuff we have is fields of white cotton that hasn't been picked yet!

  4. U nas śnieg wczoraj zniknął, na szczęście i wcale nie czekam na jego powrót. Pierwsze zdjęcie śliczne. Pozdrawiam.
    In our last snow disappeared, thankfully, and did not wait for his return. The first picture beautiful. Yours.

  5. Love the poem and the snow! No snow here yet!

  6. This is a little too much snow and too soon!!! But maybe we will still get some Indian Summer!!

  7. Are you snowed in? We're having lots of rain interspersed with driving hailstones and howling winds. Good time to be snuggled up indoors!

  8. November 1st in Kansas and almost 80degrees today??? This is not normal Ks weather for this time of year.

  9. Nothing like that in this neck of the woods. You keep it all please.

  10. Lovely poem.
    Oh my snow!
    I have to fix my link to your blog.

  11. Oh no! You have snow! Keep it there please. Oh wait maybe that would be preferable to the neverending rain we've had for over a week. I'll have to think about it jane. I am so pleased that you are posting again. Great photo and loved the poem! I truly hope that your sore arm is feeling better.

  12. Hi Jane, welcome back to blogging! I tried to comment on your blog last week, and I just received a 'weird' message...thought it was my computer; Wow, you got all that snow already? For us here in S. Florida we had a huge storm, horrific beach erosion; but nothing compares to what they went through in the N.E. part of our country in N.Y. and New Jersey!
    Glad to have you back, hope your hand is much better by now:)
