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.

A Cup of Tea
When the world is all at odds
And the mind is all at sea
Then cease the useless tedium
And brew a cup of tea.
There is magic in its fragrance,
There is solace in its taste;
And the laden moments vanish
Somehow into space.
And the world becomes a lovely thing!
There’s beauty as you’ll see;
All because you briefly stopped
To brew a cup of tea.
Tea helps our head and heart.
Ted medicates most every part.
Tea rejuvenates the very old.
Tea warms the hands of those who’re cold.
