Lorra Rudman sent us several of her poems but this one, entitled “Underdog”, is her favourite and was written in 1984.
Cloudy is the underdog
Who dresses all in grey
But has she not the right to joy
As any Sunny day?
She reaches out her rolling strength
To charge me full and strong
To lift me high on passion arms
To nurture me along.
The rays of Sun are always warm
He’s simple to define
But Cloudy’s the romantic one
Whose dark deserves to shine.
