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 in May 2018 his book What Happened In Vienna, Jack? became a number one bestseller on four separate Amazon sites: America, UK, Canada and Australia. Although it’s true to say that he mainly concentrates on what he knows best; murders laced by the mystery involving spies, his diverse experience of life shows in the short stories he writes, namely: Why? A Complicated Love, and the intriguing story titled The Story That Had No Beginning. 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 in the UK.
