November, Winter, Change & Hope

How bittersweet November’s chill

As earth removes her lovely gown

Her scattered raiment at my feet

She stands so stark before me now

The winter snows will soon adorn

Each tender limb and windswept hill

With sparkling cover as I mourn

The splendor of a summer’s thrill

When on the frozen forest floor

With laden boughs of gleaming white

Resplendent evergreen galore

Lends hope of spring within my sight

How bittersweet the winds of change

Convincing each great thing to bend

And with each turn somehow arrange

Our seasons that will never end

    Not many people can have a way with words in a way that isn’t a bore in the style of the Victorian writers.
