When the gales of November came early

 A friend of mine is a Gordon Lightfoot fan. He wanted to see the monument in Tudhope Park when he contracted Covid. He recovered but was not able to make the visit. So this is dedicated from one "bird" to another.

The main monument is at the end of the Barnfield peninsula:

Most of his songs appear among the leaves:

There is a "key" nearby to help identify the connections:

The final element is recalled each November:

Wise Old Bird

The legend lives on from the Chippewa on downOf the big lake they called Gitche GumeeThe lake, it is said, never gives up her deadWhen the skies of November turn gloomyWith a load of iron ore twenty-six thousand tons moreThan the Edmund Fitzgerald weighed emptyThat good ship and true was a bone to be chewedWhen the gales of November came early
