The Uninvited Grey

from by The Tree Ring



We thought that the summer'd never come
Waiting for weeks without the sun
Grieving with everyone
Shaking our heads in conversation
So we scrambled for any sort of way
To protest the uninvited grey
But nothing that we could say
Could made it meet our presumptions
And so we resigned to pass the time
Under a gift
That we didn't like

When we are afraid we turn to words
Of men who had no more time on earth than us
And no better feeling when
They woke up on mornings after they had wondered why they were alive
And gave into awful things deep in the night
Tired and haunted
By all the holes
That nobody's ever known
What would we
Do without them?
