As November comes to a close we're treated to a beautiful moon above us. British poet Thomas Hood often took a humorous approach to his subjects and that's very clear in his poem "No!".
"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,
Thomas Hood, British poet and humorist (1799 - 1845)
