Autumn in Geneva, Switzerland.

November by Thomas Hood

No sun – no moon! 
No morn – no noon – 
No dawn – no dusk – no proper time of day – 
No sky – no earthly view – 
No distance looking blue – 
No road – no street – no ‘t’other side the way’ – 
No end to any Row – 
No indications where the Crescents go – 
No top to any steeple – 
No recognitions of familiar people – 
No courtesies for showing ’em – 
No knowing ’em – 
No travelling at all – no locomotion, 
No inkling of the way – no notion – 
‘No go’ – by land or ocean – 
No mail – no post – 
No news from any foreign coast – 
No Park – no Ring – no afternoon gentility – 
No company – no nobility – 
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, –
