November's End

Christmas muzak
Wordless for the moment
Cold crisp air
Northern hemisphere
Snowless sidewalks
Booted girls in long coats
Scarf-wrapped boys go capless
Frogs slumber in cold mud
Spider eggs start ticking down to spring
Leaves stripped from branches
Cluttering the streets
Outside the newly wrapped windows
Where kerosene burns the first time
At dark suppertimes
Or reading a book in bed
Before cold mud slumber
Wakes to work in the chill morning
