Love Poem: Steel Gray

Steel Gray

Steel gray clouds suppress the dawn
Maybe rain hides up there
At least a damp coolness hovers
Suggesting autumn almost here

The sun is behind the dark clouds
There's a glimmer seen
A hole in the mass has pink streaks
And in the woods deer dreams

A few barn swallows dart above
Catching the early bugs
A Red Cardinal sings love songs
As roosters crow proudly smug

Like the man who struts along in time
To an internal beat
Roosters' breast extended plumage
Arrogant on the street
