Zebra


I am fond of Zebra colour:
Of black and white;
I love all bright colours,
And they say the brightest
Shade on earth is white.

At the mature age-
Or rather old-
Of fifty five, I became sure
That nothing can change this
Clear nature of mine; obscurity
Is not mine, I just dislike dim
Hazy unclear hue,
Approache, and attitude,
As well as principle,
Hence, grey is not mine,
Nor Paige or any unclear
Tint, ethic or value.

Though I love clouds,
But only light ones before
Shower not storm;
Or heavy rain.

In this era of hurricane,
As well as flooding,
Nothing like hail on stage,
Mist also plays its role,
Like dew in irrigating
Dry lands and souls.

"Come, pretty birds, present your lays,
And learn to chaunt a goddess praise;
Ye wood-nymphs, let your voices be
Employ'd to serve her deity:
