November poems, sayings and quotes

Fallen leaves lying on the grass in the November sun bring more happiness than the daffodils.    -  Cyril Connolly

"How silently they tumble down
And come to rest upon the ground
To lay a carpet, rich and rare,
Beneath the trees without a care,
Content to sleep, their work well done,
Colors gleaming in the sun.

At other times, they wildly fly
Until they nearly reach the sky.
Twisting, turning through the air
Till all the trees stand stark and bare.
Exhausted, drop to earth below
To wait, like children, for the snow."

- Elsie N. Brady, Leaves

Winter is an etching, spring a watercolor, summer an oil painting and autumn a mosiac of them all.   -   Stanley Horowitz

"Over the river and through the woods
Trot fast my dapple gray.
Spring over the ground
Like a hunting hound
On this Thanksgiving Day, Hey!
Over the river and through the woods
Now Grandmother's face I spy.
Hurrah for the fun,
Is the pudding done?
Hurrah for the pumpkin pie."

- English folksong, It's Raining, It's Pouring

In the garden, Autumn is, indeed the crowning glory of the year, bringing us the fruition of months of thought and care and toil.  And at no season, safe perhaps in Daffodil time, do we get such superb colour as from August to November.    -    Rose J. Kingsley

"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, No!

Delicious autumn!  My very own soul is wedded to it, and if I were a bird I would fly about the earth seeking the successive autumns.    -   George Elliot

"November's sky is chill and drear,
November's leaf is red and sear."
- Sir Walter Scott

Autumn burned brightly, a running flame through the mountains, a torch flung to the trees.    -     Faith Baldwin

Despite the frivolous holidays November is a busy month for holiday and preparation for winter, at least in the north country.

dahoglund, November is a busy month but I find December even busier, not just because of the holidays but the birthdays in our family are overwhelming.

I thought you might be DeGreek. If I had to pick a day centered on food I think I would have to pick Bittersweet Chocolate With Almonds Day

This is just wonderful! Housewife's Day? Vinegar Day? Cliche Day? Even King Tut Day. I always feel we need to find reason to celebrate far more often - but who knew about all these 'days' - this is just so perfect.

Thanks a million and rated up. I know what I will be doing in November. Yay!

BK, Who knew there was a Housewife's Day? I think there must be a holiday out there for everyone and everything.
