Dark Days
By Grace O’Reilly

Short, dark days and long black nights.
The daytime one third of the 24 hour cycle.
The daylight a constant feel of “half hour before lights are switched on”;
for it’s that grey, bleak darkness.
Too dark to see and enjoy the day;
and too bright for artificial light.
Nightime now and for the next 4 months;
two thirds pitch and almost pitch black darkness.

Our lives plunged into Mr Winter’s life!
