THE FIRST STORM OF AUTUMN

by D J DESMOND

First(?) Published 1944 by The National Magazine Company

A lovely, descriptive piece of prose, poetic in nature, about the South West wind. It was written in wartime and for adults.
In this way it is presented by Saville in his collection The Country Scrapbook (pp111,112). It is published under the name D J Desmond and nowhere does Saville claim authorship.

I think that it may have been originally written for, but not used by, some magazine; perhaps My Garden.
