IT’S GETTING COLD, by Danny Kemp

It’s Getting Cold!

Black barked trees with dangling seeds,

Chestnuts falling through brown stained leaves.

A rotting trunk in waters cold,

Ducks swimming passed with colours bold.


A solitary boat tied to a rusty cleat,

A dipping sun, scant of heat.

Coats now, where T-shirts were worn.

Smiles replaced by cold looks of scorn.


Winter approaches with its shorter days,

Moon lit nights in a ghostly blaze.

Chilled is my blood as I feel the cold.

Is this just another sign of getting old!

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.
