Larkin sadness

Rain falls for the first time in weeks

and the sky is a muzzled grey:

every bloom and green field

is diminished by half 

and the cat tracks in mud

and wilted blossom from the trees.

 

Life falls into monochrome –

a sleep-deprived dimness

as I watch each rivulet weave

a fairytale down the window:

a sad story which will mean nothing

to me once the sun reveals herself again.
