Your Scarlet Coat - Poem by David Stephens

As you walked across the fields of snow
your scarlet coat was like the blood
of some tiny wounded animal.

Your moon-like face was bright
and when at last you came into my arms
I saw the snowflakes dying in your hair.

    This is a voice from way back! I hope you respond. It would be good to catch up on these many years. Tony Woodcock (Report)Reply

    Most times, a poem like this goes on and on and on, to boring death. But this one left me very hungry for more. Beautiful poem. (Report)Reply
