We do not live these days, but each exhausting day
unnerved we numbly wait return of life, and must abide
the wind, the still beleaguering wind;
All voices else outside imperiously it has blown away

Over the bronze-brown paddocks the grass is bowed flat down…
Along the birdless creek a cold malevolence has passed…
A forlorn sparrow clings on the fence against the icy blast,
his soft breast feathers loosely blown
. Excerpt J.Devaney

Some days “exhausted, unnerved”, we wait for it to pass….for warmth, for sun, for grief to be alleviated….
