The Girl

The Girl

A Poem by Clive D Costa

She sat there in a melancholy way....

She just sat there in a melancholy way
Silent, like the silent day.
About the place, quite and cold,
About the girl: she didn't look too old.

It was winter, icy and dark
Slippery roads, frozen bark.
The whole area was chilly white
It looked like the scenario of a beautiful night.

I ventured further, to get a look at her.
Now that I did she had skin like leather.
I sat down , to ask"what's goin' on?"
I hardly believed my eyes"She's gone!"
Was that a ghost? or was it just me?
Was that the past? or was that a memory?

hmmmmmmm the last line leaves me pondering i liked that :) .hmmmmmmmm from what i read you described the weather to be of a cold and white aura .which described her being being meloncholy quite well .it was somewhat to surreal so i do believe her to be a memory

I love when poems end with cool questions like this one. It opens a conversation with the reader. Personally, I like to think she was "a memory" :)

Still, I think the line I like best is "Silent, like the silent day." What a resonant and beautiful line to have in a poem.
