Swinging by November

Answer November —
Prefer rain or snow —
Open path or woods —
Leaves dijon or green?

Ah, said November —
Where is quiet mist —
Where is floweret —
Where is blue jay —
Answer: Me

Nay — said October —
Show me maple —
Show me berries —
Show me blue jay —

Baffled blue jay —
Where be acorns —
Where be shrubs  —
Where be seeds —
Here — said November —

    I’m taking dijon, Sanaa. Those yellow brown trees are sooo pretty in your picture, the snow makes them stand out even more. By November we’ve had enough green. Though here in Texas, it will stay green until some time in December.
