Verna, Congratulations on your 1st place win in the EC division.

This poem brings back so many memories.
Congratulations, Verna, on your 1st place EC award. Your poem had feeling and movement.

I was wondering if dividing it into stanzas would make it more readable, but I think it would spoil the effect.
Congratulations Verna! This is a really lovely poem which paints a 'video' picture of November days. Even though my November days here in Australia are nothing like that, your poem captures the feel, sounds, aromas and joys of your November so well I am almost there enjoying it.
Congratulations on your win, Verna. Beautiful imagery in your descriptions. Like Ellen has mentioned, any chill November winds down here are relics of a winter that doesn't want to leave town. But you've captured so much authentic feeling in your work. Well done.
My absolute favorite line, "The sun takes longer naps..." and then you tie this together with your first two lines repeating. Love, love, love this! Congrats, Verna!
The second read through captured my imagination with a crisp breeze.
Congratulations on your EC win.
