Poetry Reading: “November Beckons” by Nick Reeves

When I first read “November Beckons” on Nick Reeves’s blog, I immediately knew I wanted to make a recording of it–so I bookmarked it with a note for a future blog post.

Then this past Saturday, my husband and I took a drive through the White Mountains in New Hampshire and the Connecticut River Valley in Vermont. The fading foliage was so unexpectedly beautiful, I decided that the time for “November Beckons” is now.

  1. What I remember from early reading: The Old Man in the Mountain image in New Hampshire, a landmark I think collapsed some time ago. Your reading of the poetic images for November is spot on. November and time change beckons. Thank you for the reading, Liz.

    1. Yes, the Old Man of the Mountain fell off in 2003. Nature reclaimed him, which, in the end, is how it should be, although I do miss him every time we drive through Franconia Notch.

      I’m so glad you enjoyed my reading of Nick’s poem and the accompanying images. I felt the need to share something good with others.

  2. Lovely reading, poem, and photos, Liz. “The ink faded and reminiscent of early morning light…” is a great line. Nothing beats the special colors of dusk and twilight. I especially appreciate how he likens the acorns collected in a jar with memory and friends. Autumn is definitely a time for recollection. There’s lots in this little poem. ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. A wonderful job, Liz. We don’t really have a change of seasons (except in the department stores), so pictures like this help to bring my childhood memories of a beckoning November.
    Thank you!
