Horrible "Premonition" October Skies

I was awakened this morning,
By loud roaring on the twenty seventh day,
Of the tenth month of this year.

I gaze out my window with
Awe, amazement and disbelief.

I see enormous spears,
Rising from the ground with
Fire and long plumes of smoke!

I begin to hear loud

I hear people running and screaming,
"Those mad men have started that great war in the desert."

I begin to hear loud explosions to my East.
See giant mushrooms sprouting all around me.

In a bright flash.
I wake up. and say, "Thank God, this was
All, just a terrible dream."

I look at the calendar.
I see that it's the twenty seventh day,
Of the tenth month of this year.

I turn to the morning News on TV. I see a Special
Report. Saying, "War in the desert so far away has begun.

October Skies.

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
