Listen.	
With faint dry sound,	
Like steps of passing ghosts,	
The leaves, frost-crisp'd, break from the trees	
And fall.


Note: Bottelier's setting begins with the title "November night" sung twice.

These be
three silent things:
The falling snow . . . the hour
Before the dawn . . . the mouth of one
Just dead.

As it
Were tissue of silver
I'll wear, O Fate, thy grey,
And go mistily radiant, clad
Like the moon.

Just now,
Out of the strange
Still dusk . . . as strange, as still . . .
A white moth flew . . . Why am I grown
So cold?
