In the Month of November
In the month of November
Chilled winds blow in mountain states
Bundled up children play in first snow of winter
Rusty blades scrape on a barely white road
Scarred pumpkins disintegrate on wooden porches
Brown leaves swirl in their death dance to the ground
And for all of these things
We remember to be thankful.
