A Slash Of Blue Poem by Emily Dickinson

A Slash Of Blue

Rating: 3.2


A slash of Blue—
A sweep of Gray—
Some scarlet patches on the way,
Compose an Evening Sky—
A little purple—slipped between—
Some Ruby Trousers hurried on—
A Wave of Gold—
A Bank of Day—
This just makes out the Morning Sky.

Dawn, she can't keep it up any longer. She died in 1886.

I believe this poem might also be about the civil war.

Mind blowing narration of the motley hues displayed in the sky at the out break of dawn and soon thereafter. Thanks for sharing here.

Playful today with this one, isn't she? It's the right tone to take when describing happy dawns and sunsets
