The Eve Of Winters Reign - Poem by Steve Hancock

Suffer oh summer skies
In sombre shades of grey
A trail of thunder nimbus
Crescendos across the day

The symphony of dawns chorus
Betrays my expectation
The feathered wings of freedom
Seek refuge in migration

Sweeping carpets of foliage
A fusion of autumnal browns
Branches naked and withered
Bereft of their summer crowns

The sun kissed skins of vanity
Fade beneath thermal attire
The chilly hands of summers end
Rekindle the old coal fire

The rain of a thousand love songs
Pummel the window pane
The sun retires to slumber
On the eve of winters reign
