Hold Hard.

Hold Hard.

A Poem by Fay Slimm

he autumnal sunset picture is of Pendennis in Cornwall - - Hope you enjoy the poem's olde Cornish suggestions as winter approaches.



Hold Hard.


When autumn creeps nearer

with lessening light

hold hard to each space seen

in grey-cloud denseness.

When glimpsing low sunsets

ripping holes in night

for but a few moments know 

winter's embedding.


Best then to set every hearth 

wood-stooked and ready.
