November's Lament

Last night before I went to bed I thought I heard “the hawk” a’callin’ Crying out that autumn’s fled And soon I’d see the snow a’fallin’ All through the night the windows rattling Proclaiming nature’s forces battling And when I woke I saw firsthand Through frosty panes a wonderland Of snow-draped trees and fields a’glimmer Autumn’s colors now draped in white Revealed by morning’s dawning light Made landscapes prance and shimmer Tree’s shadows drooped with chilled defiance Delaying Winter’s restful slumber Till Spring awakens sleeping giants And begins anew Spring’s untold wonder
