The Poet To His Muse

Come here my beloved and color my day

And sweep those dusty old cobwebs away —

Applying a hand both generous and bold,

Revive this drab morning with blue, red and gold,

Allowing your palette to shimmer and sway

Revealing a purple and orange at play —

And whence hope is felt but rarely is seen

I ask you beloved do show me some green —

But never beloved, never more grey

For it speaks only of age and of death and decay.
