November

No sun - no moon!
No morn - no noon -
No dawn - no dusk - no proper time of day.
No warmth, no cheerfulness, no healthful ease,
No comfortable feel in any member -
No shade, no shine, no butterflies, no bees,
No fruits, no flowers, no leaves, no birds! -
November!

Not complete poem. For Shame
I remember this poem from high school, and - unless he wrote two - this isn't it. It is much longer - No sun, no moon, no morn, no noon, no dawn, no dusk, no proper time of day, no sky, no earthly view, no distance looking blue, no road, no street, no the other side of the way, no top to any steeple, ... and a lot more.
Perfect poem for this dreary month
What a horrible poem Surely now days we should see that mother nature need to rest I hate this poem it annoys me
I learnt the poem at school 66 years ago but remember it as being longer than this Does anyone know it all
