    Nice imagery for “desolation.” Reading your first paragraph I was reminded of the opening line of Edgar Allen Poe’s poem, The Raven. “Once upon a midnight dreary, while I pondered weak and weary,”

      It’s exactly what I see from my window. Thank you for your comment. I’ve never dreamed to write something that could remind to someone a poem of the great Poe.

    Well, you succeeded in reminding me of Poe. I’m also reminded of the Longfellow poem,The Rainy Day

    THE DAY is cold, and dark, and dreary;
    It rains, and the wind is never weary;
    The vine still clings to the mouldering wall,
    But at every gust the dead leaves fall,
    And the day is dark and dreary. 5

    My life is cold, and dark, and dreary;
    It rains, and the wind is never weary;
    My thoughts still cling to the mouldering Past,
    But the hopes of youth fall thick in the blast,
    And the days are dark and dreary. 10

    Be still, sad heart! and cease repining;
    Behind the clouds is the sun still shining;
    Thy fate is the common fate of all,
    Into each life some rain must fall,
    Some days must be dark and dreary.

      …. dark and dreary. It really defines the image I see from my back window. I didn’t know this poem. I liked it. Thank you.
