Rain - Poem by Jack Gilbert

Suddenly this defeat.
This rain.
The blues gone gray
And the browns gone gray
And yellow
A terrible amber.
In the cold streets
Your warm body.
In whatever room
Your warm body.
Among all the people
Your absence
The people who are always
Not you.


I have been easy with trees
Too long.
Too familiar with mountains.
Joy has been a habit.
Now
Suddenly
This rain.


Anonymous submission.

    The blues gone gray

    Expressing the impermanence of nature.
    Change is the only constant thing. Nice one!

    The people who are not you. In the absence of one who was loved, all that was once bright becomes dreary grey rain. Haunting. (Report) Reply
