By Amanda Pugh
Genre: Poetry Level: Elementary 4-6
Year: 2005 Category: Margaret Mielke Memorial Poetry Award

Black is the blanket
which the bulging stars
sit upon as they share their
It is the darkness of a misty
Black is the coal dust
on a miner's face.
It is a raven swooping down
to retrieve a berry
Black is black.
