To the Black Bird
No, not a raven –
and I do not despise the color.
The leafless bough of a gray tree where you sit like an angel,
reminds me that you are enchanting in appearance.
You are colored and the gray bough seems to be faded and colorless,
you are winged and the gray bough is leafless.
You are black but colorful,
gray bough is gray but faded and colorless.
