Draped In Cotton
by Laura Michelle

Oh blue, oh blue skies have no flaw, no cloud
only what is crisp, cold, frozen color
How pure, how blemish less this sky unbowed
It does not drift, it only stands taller

And then, when the day begins to descend
this blue, this blue, will struggle with the dark
they will battle and feud until they blend
and this glorious blend will spread and spark

This blue will surrender to the darkness
and black will engulf the wide and strong skies
Night will replace day, slowing and ageless
I will miss you quiet blue hue, wait to rise

Rest beneath the stars, and wait until day
and tomorrow the clouds will soar and sway

SONG FROM A COTTON FIELD - BESSIE BROWN [youtube.com]

      Des bleus sombres drapés dans les nuages et s'illuminant en un presque turquoise, sur le calme du lac !
      Magnifique !

      Many blue for this beautiful capture and many blue in the story..
      Battle between light and darkness from the first world's morning.
