I woke to eyes that see
a world in black and white
and though i rubbed them hard
could not restore to sight

hues i'm accustomed to.
Monochromatic world -
sky and trees white and gray
black roof on which snow twirled

All black and gray and white

is seen to win the day.

The dusk is falling now
and finally a hue
spread beyond my window:
white has become blue.
