Shepherd's Delight

Shepherd's Delight

Sunset

It wasn't the red of the clouds
which delighted us
It was that they could be
that color.

Winter took from us
the brilliance of the setting sun
giving us pale sunsets
in pastel.

This week the sun returned
in a flash of colored glory
a promise of spring to come
in Red.
