November’s the month that you get a chance,
To spend time outside a little while longer.
Warm sunny days pop up now and then,
But the wind is cooler and a little bit stronger.
Leaf’s dangling on branches here and their,
Plenty of warning before they are totally bare.
Darkness comes early, light no longer yours,
Better get busy, finish up those outdoor chores.
Repair all the the cracks in the window panes,
Clean out the twigs and leaves in your drains.
Stack up plenty of logs in a nearby covered space
You’ll have nightly warmth coming from your fireplace.
November gives you the time to put your mind at ease,
The Almanac gives warning, this winter a deep freeze.
Sitting by the fire with your coffee, you have not a care,
You were the smart one, you knew how to well prepare.
