Nearing December

November 28, 2011

In late November, when down the lane

Autumn leaves heap on colors bright

Lo; golden foliage lay at my feet,

Sleepy months of restful days and nights.

Hues of fall, its end is nigh. So sparse, so cold

The barren winter-monat draws near.

Note:  The Saxons referred to the last month of the year as winter-monat.
