    What do they mean?

    This is a poem extract from 'The Months ' by Christina Rossetti.
    'January cold desolate
    February dripping wet
    ......
    In rough October
    Earth must disrobe her
    Stars fall and shoot
    In keen November '

    Although I can guess its general meaning, I'd like its more specific one. Thanks.

    Re: What do they mean?

    It's a poem. I don't think there is any "specific meaning" necessarily.

    She seems to be talking about the weather, mostly. I don't know why November would be associated with shooting stars.

    The disrobing in October refers to trees shedding their leaves.
