Across The Red Sky

Rating: 2.9
Across the red sky two birds flying,
Flying with drooping wings.
Silent and solitary their ominous flight.
All day the triumphant sun with yellow banners
Warred and warred with the earth, and when she yielded
Stabbed her heart, gathered her blood in a chalice,
Spilling it over the evening sky.
When the dark plumaged birds go flying, flying,
Quiet lies the earth wrapt in her mournful shadow,
Her sightless eyes turned to the red sky
And the restlessly seeking birds.

A mediocre, predictable poem.

Yes. This is the Katherine Mansfield whose short stories I studied for a semester and wished for more. Perfect poem in every way- form, style, word choice, meaningfulness. Perfect 10

An exceptionally vibrant emotive poem sadly not appreciated by critics lacking visions of appreciation.
