Dark Clouds Try (poem)

Updated on November 17, 2013

Dark clouds which tries my day into a night

A scent of music toys with your dismay

A rainbow bridge casts Joy on your display

The tears you rain are springs of sheer delight


Your plume of gloom which steals the sun away

Cannot touch or mar this vision bright

Whose plume could groom the heavens to incite

And turn the night you bring back into day


Storm storm your anger in a passing rage

Blow blow of moments lost down empty streets

Weep weep with feeling stirred in senseless guise


Yet pointless is the battle which you wage

As in your shadow dream filled meaning beats

For I am dancing in my lover’s eyes

      Hi Martin, startin' a new week charmin'!

      I like this sonnet, a lot of thought and poetic sensitivity about life experience. It still needs work (esp. line 6), which I can't outline here, bec. I only have time to revel in its many fine moments. I esp. like section 3 where I listen and learn from your inventive use of words. (But please look up the difference between "which" and "that" in current standard American usage.)

      And your music comes from outside my normal range; what is it? whence is it? It actually sounds like music, which I hunger for, compared to what my radio says today. I lost touch with popular tastes when I stopped playing the piano about 40 years ago.

      Your relentless daily output is impressive. Please keep after it; you are doing a fine job, making an important contribution. I'm only sorry I cannot give it more time and attention.
