Neu! Boots Are Made For Walking DAY FORTY-ONE – Sally Evans

The Fear

The first snow on Ben Ledi
and a silence has descended.
We can feel the fear already.

In the air that should be heady
our own street seems undefended,
as the first snow’s on Ben Ledi

and the hoar hangs like a dready
where the autumn glow has ended.
We can feel the fear already,

our way of life unsteady
with a wider friction blended
and the first snow’s on Ben Ledi.

Help us, Allah, Christ or Jedi
please let all our ills be mended.
We can feel the fear already.

There’s a swirl, a tide, an eddy
through our small safe realm, attended
by the first snows of Ben Ledi:
we can feel the fear already.
