A Spell - Poem by Barry Middleton

there isn't much time
for prayer or for rhyme
the clock keeps ticking all day

the rain softly falls
and a somber mood calls
the sky is foreboding and gray

I cannot quite believe
for the sharp winds deceive
and hope only seems to betray

for the cold casts a spell
like a dreaded death knell
and grief that forever must stay
