Saturnine (Poetry)

“Saturnine” is a poem written around the various definitions of the title word of the poem, Saturnine.

Oh, who is this unsmiling face?

Where once there was a happy place

Somber tones, brooding expressions, 

Now leave a gloomy impression

This melancholy state in which 

you’re in must make a sudden switch

So humorless now, but not then

Just can’t see you dour again

I’ll figure out what’s made you glum

Turn you back to sweet as a plum

Turn’d inside out, morose to bright

Never again a moody night
