(375) Faded Red Dress

Rating: 4.2

There you were a sight to behold,
quietly sleeping, in shimmering folds.
No heart to disturb your precious rest,
I left you lying there in a faded red dress.

Dream my darling dream as only you can
listen to the song birds, hold them in your hand

I’ll take a walk several blocks away,
When I return we’ll start our day.

beautiful morning, bright and clear,

Great poem Germain, is not the faded dress the bird, what we hold after the incident of experience is all we truly have.

I rarely show emotions for I grew up really hard but your sweet/sad poem nearly broke my heart I was not sure but I thought a tear came to my eye and when I tried to hold it back I could not though I tried thanks Mel

Lovely poem, Melvina. It could be made into a song. It already has the chorus and everything.

i thought for sure i'd read and commented on this one this past year! perhaps not? anyway, i definitely like this one and shall send it to MyPoemList and to my/our November showcase, Section B. a bit depressing for some near the end i suppose, but some will perhaps enjoy knowing that others grieve for lost ones. well done! I like the rhyming and the repetition of the two-line stanza; can’t go too wrong mentioning song birds! bri :)
