A Slash Of Blue

204

A slash of Blue—
A sweep of Gray—
Some scarlet patches on the way,
Compose an Evening Sky—
A little purple—slipped between—
Some Ruby Trousers hurried on—
A Wave of Gold—
A Bank of Day—
This just makes out the Morning Sky.

by Emily Dickinson

Mind blowing narration of the motley hues displayed in the sky at the out break of dawn and soon thereafter. Thanks for sharing here.
Playful today with this one, isn't she? It's the right tone to take when describing happy dawns and sunsets
Colorful words to describe the morning & evening sky.
Nicely thought poem, thanks for sharing.
