November


"A tingling, misty marvel

Blew hither in the night,

And now the little peach-trees

Are clasped in frozen light.



Upon the apple-branches

An icy film is caught,

With trailing threads of gossamer

In pearly patterns wrought.



The autumn sun, in wonder,

Is gayly peering through

This silver-tissued network

Across the frosty blue.



The weather-vane is fire-tipped,

The honeysuckle shows

A dazzling icy splendor,

And crystal is the rose."

- Evaleen Stein, November Morning
