A Beautiful Kind



In crimson cries the southern skies

Long tears drip in great lament

This rosy view of reddish hue

A loving message ever sent


The ashen gray birds fly away

To find the setting sun on wing

With muted tone and wishes thrown

They still find a reason to sing


And in the glass, our last repast

Let us drink it to the dregs

For we don’t know the full sorrow

Till heart bleeds and lonely begs


A jealous green, the meadow seen

As it covets the waning sun

And what it gives to all that live

A familiar song well sung


And just because a moment’s pause

Is all it takes for us to find

This thing we share, oh so rare

A world of the beautiful kind

    Great! Smashing poem Brad! Loved it! Beautiful words, perfectly placed, precisely tuned. I hope you are having a great Sunday! Today the children are allowed to go to the park and next Saturday all of us will finally be allowed to go out and exercise! Thank God for small favours (really big ones in these days)! All the best,

      Thank you, my dear friend! I am glad you enjoyed it. So happy to hear that things are opening up a bit for you. Your country has done itself proud in pulling together and keeping your people safe. Stay safe and well, Francisco! Watch out for sunburn…😁

    There are not enough words in the English language to describe how much I love this poem! It’s beautiful. I can just picture myself looking out across a field and watching the sunset. Majestic & beautiful! 😍😍
