November's first storm at Rokeby evoke the prose of Rowland Evans Robinson... 

🍂❄️ November Voices ❄️🍂

With flowers and leaves, the bird songs have faded out, and the hum and chirp of insect life, the low and bleat of herds and flocks afield, and the busy sounds of husbandry have grown infrequent. There are lapses of such silence that the ear aches  for some audible signal of life; and then to appease it there comes with the rising breeze the solumn murmur of the pines like the song of the sea on distant shores, the sibilant whisper of the dead herbage, the clatter of dried pods, and the fitful stir of fallen leaves, like a scurry of ghostly feet fleeing in affright at the sounds of thier own passage. 

-RER, In New England Fields and Woods, 1896
