A Crying Gale.


Cry death doth the wind

Speak loudly thy name

Be proud of your calling

Hide not in shame.

Your presence is welcome

By all who have grieved

No fear lies within

A soul so relieved.

To a heart fading slowly

Entombed in regret

Stay not your hand

But on it beset.

Grey exists now

Where life was adorned

With vivid colour

Gone and so mourned.

Lovers have left

Leaving a void

Filled with distaste

All emotion devoid.

Gather all hearts

That once held love

Join them together

And take them above.

Sit me down in such a place

To hear the wisdom spoken there.

Clear my heart of sorrow

Take away all care.

About Daniel Kemp

Daniel Kemp, ex-London police officer, mini-cab business owner, pub tenant and licensed London taxi driver never planned to be a writer, but after his first novel —The Desolate Garden — was under a paid option to become a $30 million film for five years until distribution became an insurmountable problem for the production company what else could he do? Nowadays he is a prolific storyteller, and although it’s true to say that he mainly concentrates on what he knows most about; murders laced by the intrigue involving spies, his diverse experience of life shows in the short stories he compiles both for adults and children. He is the recipient of rave reviews from a prestigious Manhattan publication, been described as —the new Graham Green — by a managerial employee of Waterstones Books, for whom he did a countrywide tour of signing events, and he has appeared on ‘live' television.
