Treasure Island

Midnights Voice

(November 3,1950 / Selma, Alabama)

Shades of Gray


ah! earrrrrrrrrrrrl
earrrrrrrr, Ah-earrrrrrrrllllll!

Lonely wolf of the night
Howl of Loneliness so blight.

Steal,
Concrete,
And glass.

In our wilderness tonight
Full of fright
Running with the pack
On pack mentality
No black or white,

Only shades of gray.

    The alligators always sing in the city, usually about the fools who chase them. This is a lesson for fools (Report) Reply

    It is like capturing that moment of glimpsing a wolf pack naturally. Well envisioned. (Report) Reply

    Did you mean steel? If it is steal I get another meaning to the poem. Lonely wolf running with pack mentality. Beautiful poem meaning looks deeper than I can think of. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Know'st thou not at the fall of the leaf
How the heart feels a languid grief
Laid on it for a covering,
And how sleep seems a goodly thing
