Lullaby Poem by Eve Merriam

Lullaby

Rating: 3.5


Purple,
Purple,
Twilight
Sky light.

Purple as a king's cape
Purple as a grape.

Purple for the evening
When daylight is leaving.

Soft and purry,
Gentle and furry,
Velvet evening-time.

Purple,
Purple.
Sky light
Goodbye light.

Dusky
Musky
Into night.

Nice. And with soft and purry, gentle and furry, well named. Sunset and sunrise my favorite times of day. -GK

I like how she built atmosphere line by line through her rhymes. Only four poems of hers in PoemHunter? Sigh. I would have liked more

Purple is the dusky, musky colour that rhymes and chimes. Interesting poem.
