Curtain Call - Poem by Gillena Cox

Early dawn's curtain,
Drawn to reveal rain showers,
And a pertinent absence of birdsong;
The hum of a motor engine;
The coolness of this morning,
Is quickly snatched away,
As the rain subsides;
Bird songs;
Kiskadee, kiskadee, kiskadee,
And sunlight floods the morning;
Curtain call.

(2010)

    Your verse is elegant and paints a beautiful image in my mind. It seems to have a melancholy undertone. Yet it is still a breathe of fresh air. (Report) Reply
