I Loathe A Dark Gray Sky Poem by Juan Olivarez


I loathe a dark gray sky,
I loathe a dreary day.
My soul imprisoned does oft sigh,
And longs to fly away.

I loathe the clouds so low,
Crying endlessly on me.
Dear southern wind begin to blow,
And make the gray ones flee.

    ah yes, I know the feeling, melancholy, yet much deeper even; I believe the old desert monks had a name for it: acedia. Look that one up. It sounds as if it is what you describe here.
    Superb short poem. (Report) Reply
