The Longest Night

 

We’ve had the hours of darkness

Endured the longest night

With Christmas done and dusted

The future’s looking bright

The days of fog and drizzle

That seemed to never end

Brought some to thoughts of sadness

Drove others round the bend

Those perfect autumn colours

Are windswept all away

The trees are getting ready

For Spring to hold its sway

And once Yule decorations

Are put back in their box

We can then look forward to

The Vernal Equinox.
