Student Poetry: The Day You Left

by Anonymous


The day you left, the whole world wept

Roads were bare and the city slept

Rain sprinkled down from the dark sky

Thunder roared a loud, sad goodbye

The songbirds felt the same as me.


Morning glories did not open

The waves stood still in the ocean

Sunlight hid behind a curtain

The day you left.


Bitter wind blew through my long hair

Bees buzzed the words to the Lord’s prayer

Weeping willow trees cried for you

Their tears topped grass like morning dew

Dull hues have filtered the Earth since-

The day you left.
