Blue and Red

"

Of green, blue, yellow, red, 

one blue fellow said,

two colors of true summer's

attire of soaring wonders, 

by my side have fled

with wry, dry eyes of dread.

Now all that's left is blue and red.


Of spring dew or mellow dawn

one thinks all good is gone.

Fall leaves on tall trees

all dropping, soon to freeze.

The winter stays too long.

The window drapes are drawn instead.

Now all that's left is blue and red.

I really like the rhythm and flow of this!
I especially like the feeling and imagery evoked by these lines
" Fall leaves on tall trees,

Thank you! I'm glad you like the feeling and imagery!
Oooooh! Hahahaha i like that! Its kinda psychotic (or to me it is- i have psychotic eyes and it tints everything crazy) i like the rythym and i was f*****g staring at the screen cuz this is what i need after screaming. I dont even know what im saying, minds too fogged. Need more numbing. F**k. What? I dont even know. I really like this- expecially the red. Red is good. Good to paint with and make blood canvases. Nice poem. I like it. Love it. No. Wait. I dont like love. Wait. Grr i cant think straight!!!

Yeah ok. Perhaps.
......this is def up there as one of your best. So many juicy lines, and the flow is great. The second stanza is simply divine, however it kind of counteracts the first, which undermines its own power in the way. The start paints a picture that people of the four mentioned colours exist in this world, but such a aspect is not carried over into the next stanza. The "blue fellow" I gathered could also refer to a "sad fellow", but such a notion can't exactly be argued given how the rest of the stanza reads. That minor factor aside, this is a fabulous poem!! Well done!
