November


No sun, no moon,
No morn, no noon.
No dawn, no dusk, no proper
time of day.
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.

November by Thomas Hood (1799-1845)
Photograph: (mine) Statue of a woman mourning in graveyard.

I enjoyed reading that. Beautiful photo. You've got a great taste in art. I really like it. Kind of like the All Souls Day painting posted not too long ago. This photo is just as striking.
