Drive away the summer heat

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.

I used to do lots of things I didn't much enjoy. Now I am officially a writer. It's what I always wanted to be.
