A Day In March

Rating: 3.6
Through the window the still yard.
A cat runs across and disappears through the slender doorway.
What to do on a day like this?
Such emptiness!
Looking out on these dismal rooftops and the wet sky,
One wonders how to interpret the signs:

Wind soughing in the grass,
And water trembling in a bucket.

I agree with Esther Leclerc don't take the votes so seroiusly. To be honest I try to understand the other lines, but it is still good though. 'Wind soughing in the grass, And water trembling in a bucket. ' I like this last line it was very excellent. People always tell me keep on writing and fix some of the errors. I still write and have some errors, but I still fix my errors. I posted my poems and I got 10s and 9.1 because I fix some errors in my poems to make it sound right. You can do it Mr. Ellison I know you can write a great poem.

John, don't take to heart the low votes (all that is nonsense anyway) and lack of readership. It doesn't mean anything (tell you why later) . This poem is stark but not so bare as all that; I think it's wonderful. The final two lines reflect the moment, the feeling perfectly... Esther
