Of All the Blues

I rarely think of things as being themselves alone —
a year a year, a man a man, a word a word,
a poem a poem — a love a love, a moan a moan.

 
Of All the Blues

Of all the blues that grace this world,
I love gray the best — dream-blue, rain-blue,
a lake blue by gray-night coming to dawn,
eye-blue, flight-blue, name-blue graying gray
alone — gray by love gently, gently gone,
wise-blue, saint-blue, fool-blue,
joy-blue — the gray-blue
in the sly-wink
of stone.
