A Cold Grey Wintry Day - Poem by Walterrean Salley

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
