 Elsie`s Poetry



The clocks went back now the days will be grim
Short days, dark early and the light so dim,
I suffer from S.A.D. but I am not alone
It`s nice to know I`m not on my own.

Days are bad enough but the nights are worse
This is the time of year that I always curse,
It`s like a cloak has been thrown over my head
I feel I can`t breathe and this I dread.


I often wake in the night gasping for breath
Can`t get enough air and it feels like death,
There`s no light to be had it`s dark everywhere
No light or air it is my worst nightmare.

An electric light just doesn`t do the trick
Knowing it`s dark outside makes me feel frantic,
There`s no escape until the morning comes
So all the while I am in the doldrums.
