A Cold Grey Wintry Day

On this cold, gray-wintry day,
The sun is nowhere to be found.

Listen! I hear the rain:
Pit pat, pit pat—dripppppp, plop.
Pit pat, pit pat—dripppppp, plop.

Like a sad song, its music play
To the melancholy lyric of:
“A Cold, Gray Wintry Day.”

    A tune of winter in precipitation the seasons ring in conversation, each a character demanding appreciation, play no favourites as they rotate through station, each a seed in our imagination. I loved this poem, great effort. I love when we try to capture sounds in words and in turn their tune and lyrics, nicely done. I tried to catch a clock ticking in my poem I could not sleep, which was fun to contplate. (Report) Reply

    Winter moods and rain have a definite connection.
    And you are in tune with the weather. Grey is
    a favorite poetry color of mine. Ten for you.

    Warm regards,

    Very nice...lovely picture, well rendered portrait of a moment in time defining a universal experience. Through your poem my minds eye sees your day, written with enough space to fill in the details of days I've known. Well done. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
