The Daily Post prompt is: Drive
Drive away the summer heat,
Wind that blows from out the west,
Carry storm clouds from the sea,
To break upon far distant hills.
Cover up autumn remains,
Winter cold from northern seas,
The crisped and straggling paper leaves
With fur of frost and falling snow.
Snuff out the mocking candle light,
Darkest night, the sunlight bright
That lights with baleful clarity
The empty space now you are gone.
