Villanelle Competition Entry: Three

The Freo Doctor

Furiously does the Freo Doctor blow
Bringing cool respite to this western land
Ships in the harbor pitch to and fro

A cool night ahead we all know
At the beach wind whips stinging sand
Furiously does the Freo Doctor blow

Kite surfers pirouette their watery show
The fading sun its final stand
Ships in the harbor pitch to and fro

Waft of the sheep ship travels high and low
Hear occasional riffs from a Clancy’s band
Furiously does the Freo Doctor blow

The skies bereft of seagull or crow
Force of the Doctor they cannot withstand
Ships in the harbor pitch to and fro

Night descends with ethereal glow
To sleep knowing relief from the heat is at hand
Furiously does the Freo Doctor blow
Ships in the harbor pitch to and fro
