November Music

November song is softened by
Portentous clouds that fill our sky
With shadowings of snow to come.
November plays a muted drum
Of branches against windowpane
That tap and tap ... and tap again.
Now and then wind-cymbals clang
And bluejay gives guitar a twang
But mostly, with a deepening thrum,
November plays a muted drum.
