NovemberNOVEMBER (Alternative title: NO)

No sun – no moon!

No morn – no noon –

No dawn – no dusk – nor proper time of day –

No sky – no earthly view –

No distance looking blue –

No road – no street – no “t’other side the way” –

No end to any row –

No indications where the crescents go –

No top to any steeple –

No recognitions of familiar people –

No courtesies for showing ’em –

No knowing ’em –

No travelling at all – no locomotion –

No inkling of the way – no notion –

“No go” – by land or ocean –

No mail – no post –

No news from any foreign coast –

No park – no ring – no afternoon gentility –

No company – no nobility –

No warmth, no cheerfulness, no healthful ease –

No comfortable feel in any member –

No shade, no shine, no butterflies, no bees,

No fruits, no flowers, no leaves, no birds,

November!

Thomas Hood (1799 – 1845)
