The Colured Sky
For if you’d told me colour the sky
I would, you know, I would.
But, first I would pause and ask,
“Tell me, which colour I should?”
I’d steal the silver from the stars,
From sunset, the golden hue;
Thick forests would give me their green,
And blood- the colour of a love true.
But, you asked me something else, so,
From the night its darkness I took.
And in the depth of your desired black
You left without a second look.
And there’s something you should never forget,
And something nor I should-
That, if you’d told me colour the sky,
I would, you know, I would……
