November and December As Sisters

Behind October comes the gloomy one arriving as the leaves are turning brown. Though sometimes she blows in with a bright sun, she’s often sulking in her fading gown. She’s growing old and colder in the clime where I reside, but how she changes mood by stepping lively at Thanksgiving time when families unite in gratitude. December’s right behind her bringing joy, for more festivities are bound to come. Especially for every girl and boy awaiting Santa, she is sure not glum! Her gardens, dull now, which one time were green, are covered by white flakes the heavens bring. Fields shine in moonlight – lovely and pristine. But snow will vanish with the warmth of spring. December seems most popular of all the sister months, for customs, songs, good food, and lights galore bring thoughts at end of fall of Christ the King and peace and brotherhood. November 12, 2022 for Caren Krutsinger's the 'November or December Quatrain' Poetry Contest

Yes it is so apt, that the festive season is in the middle of the dark days of winter, . Love the poetry, Andrea, and the journey you take the reader on.
