• Too blue
    too soon
    to go out
    and be merry.

    In my room
    away from
    the world
    and all that is scary.

    Sitting in my dark
    so no shadows can creep.
    Too blue
    too soon
    it is for me to sleep.

    By light of the moon,
    from my porch seat,
    I write
    too blue
    too soon
    to admit defeat.
