Now I Know Why The Sky Is Blue! - Poem by Denis Martindale

Now I know why the sky is blue...
At last I know the score...
Though once I didn't have a clue,
Today I know for sure...
I also know the reason why
The rain falls from above -
I believe the heavenly sky
Once fell and lost in love...
That's why dark clouds must first appear
Before the thunder storm
And why each raindrop's like a tear
The sky was forced to form...
Love tends to promise everything
Yet takes it all away!
At first it makes you want to sing
Then fills you with dismay!
No wonder, then, the sky is blue
Then sometimes black as night!
For love tempts Man then says, 'Adieu! '
Then laughs with all its might!
