A "November Pilgrim Girl" poem with a picture to color

 . .. . . . . Courtesy of "FreePrintable[dot]net", a freebie

Not yesterday I learned to know
The love of bare November days*
(Robert Frost, My November Guest)

Color Me

Color me the hues of your mid Autumn
 People will know my name is November 

November with pilgrim's hat, royal black
 The hat will tell the world of my values
Values we stand for still, banned from U.K.
 Standing for good teachings of the Bible

Color my dress to match the harvest, corn 
 Fill my orange bucket, a Halloween 
leftover, with frothy crystal white, frost 
 Left hand holds a shining star, colored bright

My stockings white with red and yellow bands
 Can't forget the shoes, shiny black, brown soles 
My hair will be blonde, heavy yellowish 
 Skin still summer rose, cheeks especially

Trees are yellow and red, shining slightly
 Walnuts dropping around, ripe, dulling green 
Clouds a few, dirty gray, no snow just yet 
 Let the sun be cooling, goldish orange

The ground is brown with wilted grass, dying 
 Green grass under the bench, soft on the feet
Color the bench 'park bench color', you choose
 Handsome lad come sit by our Pilgrim girl

I think November here is so much more monochrome... I just looked out of the window, and all i could do was to sigh.

"color me"... is a wonderful take off from Frost - adore his line "The love of bare November days"... I haven't heard that one before. I am off to pull my Frost book from the shelf.

My favorite about this is "color the bench park bench color" as that's just how kids would describe that! Very astute. I'm gonna check out that link too, thanks Jim. Get out and sit on that bench today :)
