Sweet November

 I love this time of year
It is a delicious secret 
that is not being passed around 
It is a time to catch one's breath
 between Halloween and Christmas

 November is the highly underrated month
It is a sweet sigh
  A wonderful surprise
The deep tones of golden, russet, and scarlet 
Smells of cinnamon, spices, bonfires, and burning leaves 
A time to harvest pumpkins, apples, and tether cornstalks.

The temperatures rise and fall
Time to reflect, and revel in the dwindling light
before the bitter bite of winters chill
