Winter Coming On

A fitting poem for today when it is dark and wet and cold.

Winter Coming On  -  29 Oct 16

The heady days of summer
Now long passed
The nights are getting longer
Becoming colder
Days cannot seem to hold
As much as they did

The songs of autumn
Just a fading memory
Leaves from the trees
Chased by the wind
Across the ground
Hiding in the corners

Soon only frost
Will rule the world
We shall await the warmth
Of beautiful spring days
But for now we watch
The winter coming on

I have heard that it is worse up-country.
