Shutting the Door on Summer

The leaves set to fall
As rain it’s drops do shower
Relentless from the sky
Free flowing torrents
From the banks
Leaching from the fields
Streams of orange
Stain the road.

A hammering on the roof
The wind it does prevail
Whipping itself around the house.

Lundy , Fastnet,Irish Sea
The shipping forecast read.
The storm it has arrived.
Saving lives at sea.

In readiness we were not-
Eeking out the last days
On borrowed time.
Shutting the door on summer.
