Highgate September Angel

The Beginning of The End

The rain
soaked roses
all fade into a
last promise
of Summer/
High searching
Crows resound
into grey
& majestic columns
of cloud
unfold
just beyond
last light.
By darkfalling
the rain was
surely as sad
as Longfellow's
snowdrops,
cold tears
sent [again]
of Heaven.
