Poem: Gray and Brown


Gray and brown
With dusting of white
Somber skies gloomy
In false daylight
Rusted and weathered
Blue and green go away
All Autumn’s colours
No longer stay
Dirty and slick
Wet, muddy ground
Covers and blankets
This tired cold town
Birds do not sing
Kids do not play
All are now hidden
From cold, gloomy day
I look at the city
I walk through the streets
People grow scarce
Silenced heartbeats
Waiting for winter
Dreading the cold
Not bright, happy sunshine
Only gray, brown, and old
