ADIEU NOVEMBER 2017 By Polly Guerin

November came in nipping at our nose
And one colder day we nearly froze

Then a whipping wind tore into space
The tree branches pirouetted in place

The colors of nature warmed the palette
Cranberry vied with gold on earth's planet

Then, too, the Veteran's Day parade 
Reminded us not to forget the brave

And a season of deeply felt gratitude
Thanksgiving helped form our attitude

Pumpkin, butternut squash, apple pie
November's aroma Delicious! I cry 

Let's not forget sweet November
Take time to record and remember

The season of a harvestful bounty
Of good feeling sentiments counting

Those glory days with family, friends
The welcome mat open never ends

We hardly had time to savor November
Those treasured days by warm embers

Time to prepare for the joyous adventure
A holiday is on the threshold, did I mention 

Parting indeed is such, such sweet sorrow
Let's look to all that's brand new tomorrow 

So I bid Adieu to November's autumn phase
Soon frosty weather takes over within days!!!

It took a long time to become me
That's quite amazing I do agree

I have achieved, I have no regrets
I'm not the kind of gal who forgets

I remember how I squandered days
My youthful folly was another phase

Those precious days sadly wasted
Pinning away worried an unscathed 

Mooning over romance, lost love
Found relief from grief from above

I count my abundant blessings now
I know myself at last, yes I do avow

Awhirl in a joyous mature dance
An now I take a backward glance

My life story's in a perfect place
I'll write it down before the race

And take life back with gratitude
A new found joie de vivre attitude

To celebrate the new reborn me
My rejuvenation sets me free!
