Quadrille

Sunrise 1  27.10.15

 

The sun rose ─
we rejoiced to see it ─
winter miseries
on the way out, albeit
late and slow.
It didn’t get much better
as the days went past.
Some days hope rose
with the sun.
As July approaches
will summer come at last?

 

For dVerse Monday Quadrille, a 44 word poem using the word rose

    I think your use of punctuation in this poem adds to the feeling of disappointment in the summer. The hesitation in the first lines, coupled with the interesting use of rhyme – kind of whimsical. I also loved the lines:
    Some days hope rose
    with the sun’.
    I was feeling like that today – it’s been pouting since this afternoon again.

    I love the subtle rhyme here, and the pace, and sound, of this:
    “albeit
    late and slow.”

    Argh! You took me back to Northern Upstate New York! Snow possible in August through April… but don’t count out May…. I took Nature’s hint. I left as quickly as possible! Great poem! Too real.
