Ruby Archer


Our twilight month November is,
The evening of the year.
The brilliant summer noontide left
A pallor soft and clear.
Dame Winter brings with quiet grace
Her curtains all of snow,
And pins them deftly into place
With boughs of mistletoe.

So much said . . . picture painted with words; simplicity: poetry empowered.

Wow. Short, simple, brilliant rhymes with a beautiful message. I so admire this kind of writing. I can't quite do it.
