Red Barns In Winter

Red Barns In Winter


Winter’s colors are removed,

And lacking the slightest array

Greens are swapped for brown and rust.

The sky is often grey.


So often winter needs a lift,

Lest our winter should seem duller.

Give your shed a coat of red instead,

We'll relish this vibrant color.


When the world seems saturated,

With shades of black and white,

When spirits need lighter hues,

A red barn is a serendipitous delight.

I like this poem. Did you see this barn on one of your bike rides, Micky?

Beautiful poetry again, Micky. l have often felt that Winter is too grey, so l tend to have a bright red winter coat, or Bright blue. Everyone seems to be in black or grey.

Love the red barn. Love you .
