Poem by Norma Beaird
At first it was very cloudy and humid. The misty clouds of a cool and breezy November night hid the full moon as we awaited with great anticipation, while parked on the side of a rural Georgia highway. Thankfully, our patience rewarded us with a lovely full moon, a magnificent spectacle of beauty cloaked in the subtle golden glow of autumn.
From the Farmer's Almanac
Full Beaver Moon – November This was the time to set beaver traps before the swamps froze, to ensure a supply of warm winter furs. Another interpretation suggests that the name Full Beaver Moon comes from the fact that the beavers are now actively preparing for winter. It is sometimes also referred to as the Frosty Moon.

November's Moonlit Nights
Autumn leaves are on the ground,
the moon is shining bright,
cooler breezes rustle trees,
a calm November night.
Nature casts a golden glow,
in autumn's evening light,
and warms the heart like crackling fires,
on cool November nights.
As evening hides the sunset hues,
as songbirds take their flight,
the air of romance lingers in,
November's moonlit nights.
