Wednesday back to the north it wheeled
And southward the wild geese honked

Before the fierce November blast
Aye, thousands of birds of passage past,
Thursday in the west it wabbled about
In a spirit of indecision and doubt.

And awkwardly introduced winter to us.

And put all the corn huskers completely
to rout.
Saturday the old year bowed his grey
In a chilly sou-easter, and mourned for
his dead.

And a cold, dismal fog creeps sullenly in.
