Heart-art



 Today is...gray.

No shadows dapple the front lawn today
Earth is a canvas of gray over gray
Darling, if it were not for love’s thought-art
It would be the color of my heart

No wild-bloom flowers on streets to the sky
No golden sun-beam or green-leaf lullaby
Darling, without us I fear this bleak art
Would be the colorless gloom of my heart

No purple posies on noon’s dinner-tray
No blue pavilion; just gardens of gray
Darling, if it were not for love’s whispered art
Today would be the color of my heart
