Gray Day

Published by at 1:22 pm under Weather & Sky

It’s an overcast morning in Pittsburgh.  This is the third day in a row of gray skies, not unusual for November here.  Today there are very few birds moving around.  The most active critters are the squirrels.

On days like this I think of the poem ‘No!’ by Thomas Hood (1844) a portion of which reads:

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!
