Poems about November
Fear not November’s challenge bold—
We’ve books and friends,
And hearths that never can grow cold:
These make amends!
– Alexander Louis Fraser (November)
So dull and dark are the November days.
The lazy mist high up the evening curled,
And now the morn quite hides in smoke and haze;
The place we occupy seems all the world.
– John Clare (November)
The womb is not a clock
nor a bell tolling,
but in the eleventh month of its life
I feel the November
of the body as well as of the calendar.
In two days it will be my birthday
and as always the earth is done with its harvest.
– Anne Sexton (Menstruation at Forty)
November’s sky is chill and drear,
November’s leaf is red and sear.
Late, gazing down the steepy linn,
That hems our little garden in.
– Sir Walter Scott (Ettrick Forest in November)
The river this November afternoon
Rests in an equipoise of sun and cloud:
A glooming light, a gleaming darkness shroud
Its passage. All seems tranquil, all in tune.
– Cecil Day-Lewis (The Complete Poems of C. Day Lewis)
Autumn I love thy latter end to view
In cold Novembers days so bleak and bare
When like life’s dwindled thread worn nearly thro
Wi lingering pottering pace and head bleach’d bare
Thou like an old man bids the world adieu.
– John Clare (Written in November)
