Lullaby

Purple,
Purple,
Twilight
Sky light.

Purple as a king's cape
Purple as a grape.

Purple for the evening
When daylight is leaving.

Soft and purry,
Gentle and furry,
Velvet evening-time.

Purple,
Purple.
Sky light
Goodbye light.

Dusky
Musky
Into night.

I like how she built atmosphere line by line through her rhymes. Only four poems of hers in PoemHunter? Sigh. I would have liked more
Like Purple Rain! ! Into the night. Thanks for sharing this poem with us.
Purple is the dusky, musky colour that rhymes and chimes. Interesting poem.
Fantastic expression on color. Amusing one.
Beautiful landscape in which a purple evening has come alive. Thanks.
