Wednesday's Wisdom: YES-es in 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!


The poem atop today's blog entry is by Thomas Hood, and I've written about it a few times here on Blogger. If you'd like to reference my posts on Hood and his poem, please click here. Hood's poem is on my mind today, because it's All Souls Day, the day which always follows All Saints Day. On a number of occasions I've written about folks who have died as well as a few saints, but honoring those who have gone from this life is one of the big yes-es in the month of November.
