How I wish this sunny weather
Could change my dispirited mood
Nature’s out in its fullest glory
I can do nothing but brood
Trees swinging in a discotheque
Little birds hunting for food
Flowers calling out the bees
Or maybe I misunderstood

There’s chirping and chattering all around
Folks laughing as they go
My spirit has a cold demeanor
Despite no sign of snow
Children jumping about carelessly
Smiles make their faces glow
I suppose there is nothing today
To pull me out of my woe

Sky burning with a golden ball
Cloudy thoughts fill my mind
Bright sunlight lift the night’s veil
To shadows I am confined
The gentle winds blow aromatically
My senses become a-blind
Why should I be the only one
That Somberness should find?

One thought on “Somberness
