Flaming June Fo M' Lady Ernestine - Poem by ivor or ivor.e hogg

The night descends so suddenly.
It’s darker than it ought to be.
Unless I’m wrong the month is June
It’s not supposed to get dark soon
but then again it’s rained all day
from weeping clouds of iron grey.
What happened to the summer sun?
This cold and damp is not much fun.
It makes my old joints ache and creak
although I know I’m not unique.
Arthritis is a malady
which will respond quite readily.
To a good dose of warm sunlight
A month or two would put me right.

    I don't think the weather has got much better since you wrote this one Ivor sad to say. We need a lot more sunlight to see us through the winter blues. Our world is changing fast and the weather is changing even faster. You certainly catch the spirit of the storyline in your works.
    Love and hugs Ernestine XXX
