Red, fuscia, purple, lime and green

These are the colors to be seen

With yellow, orange, pink, white, blue

To celebrate the springlike view,

Around the corners, every shade

And tint of green the Lord has made.

A myriad of colors bright

To lighten up each local sight

How did the Lord know long before

The beauty of His world decor ?

We thank You, Lord, for this Your gift

You sure know how to spirits lift !

There are these fields here in my dream

Where flowers in abundance gleam

Their warm and vibrant colors seem

To mirror sunshine and its beam !

I wish that I could tell you why

The grass is green and  blue’s the sky,

That clouds are white but sometimes gray

Which indicates a rainy day.

I really do not have a clue

If bluebirds all are colored blue

Or if a robin’s breast is red

What color could it be instead ?

I’d like to think there is a plan

That’s meant to help me understand

Why  colors are of such import

Among the many things we’re taught.

There are issues labeled  black and white

Does that mean everything’s alright ?

Imagine life as  colorless,

This world of ours would be a mess !

Blossoms in the garden, how shall we bear their loss

Soon the winds of autumn will all their petals toss

How often in past summers and the springtimes too

That flowers smiled and waved most of each daytime through.

All the fragile magic and all the fragrant smells

Folded in those tiny buds resting in their shells

What would this world look like without the shades of green

Plus God’s rainbow colors and everything between ?

The colors of the rainbow are

As glorious as evening star

That’s ringed by comets from afar

And shares their beauty near and far !

I think that I have never seen

Mountains so high, so very green

The forests rise up to the skies

Such beauty brings tears to the eyes,

Oh what a sight that greets me still

I see those creatures on the hill

They leap in concert with each breeze

Zigzagging through the maze of trees.

The sunlight shares its specks of dust

While warming all the earth it must

Kaleidoscope of passing sky

Where screaming vultures zoom and fly

Oh what an aspect I do see

God’s beauty waiting there for me !

Tan, orange, yellow, brown and umber too

Fall colors all just waiting there for you

Their happy faces laughing all the while

So full of zest and sporting lots of style

Thank you dear Lord above, how did you know

What treasure  grand these autumn leaves would show ?

The days grow long while nights remain cool

As time approaches, tis April Fool

Too soon all crocus will waste away

To make more room for the buds of May !

As daffodils edge the garden’s path

And the springtime rain gives all a bath

Tis odd to see how the land turns green

With the help of a God who bides unseen !

I see God’s colors clearly, crisp blue of winter sky

The umber of the dried leaves as they go flashing by

Cool gray of all the clouds as they circumvent up high

And in the sleeping gardens, dull green of plants that die.

The colors are quite somber, I wish they were alive

Suppose I’ll have to wait for the springtime to arrive

I can barely bide the time till the brightness will revive

As I make this silent wish that I shall be alive !

 

WHAT IS GREEN ( 2001 ) 2013/04/21

Wherever you look this world is shaded in green dye

From the forest’s floor clear to a rainbow in the sky,

A verdant place live with the miracle of God’s care

Plush valleys, woodlands and mountains that rise in the air.

What is green? I know that its not these roads that I trod

But the friendly gardens I pass that wave me a nod,

The blazoned grass in the fields and the oak when it’s young,

The trees that cover each grove with their seed as they’re sprung,

Grasshopper’s in flight emitting sounds that echo and hum,

No, not the air that we breathe but the source that it’s from.

 

Green’s my favorite color and the color of pine

Like the stem of each flower and the stalk of each vine,

The crest of each hill that’s burdened with blossoms it blows,

The fruits of the orchard and the tall corn as it grows,

Solemn moss upon a rock that betrays not its age,

A bird’s chorus sung from a branch, the air as its stage.

 

What is green? The deep of the sea, the heart of a palm

The chant of the willow’s sweep like the words of a psalm,

Caterpillars at birth and the new bud of a rose,

The youth of a man, the lid of his grave at its close,

The rigid eyes of a cat while its vigil will keep

In silence watching some prey, seeming lulled into sleep,

And there, like vespers in the wind that scatters  its seeds

Fast being held in the grasp of life’s swift spreading weeds

Tiny sprouts that protrude through the wet earth after rain

Are now promising me hope that the green will remain.

While the green of an emerald possesses great worth,

The best of life’s green is bound to the crust of the earth

Be glad that green’s the one color we cannot replace

It relieves the monotony of blacks, browns, and grays.

Pink and blue and maize and white

Shades of green from dark to light

Colors bathed with sunshine bright

Cheerful rainbow of delight,

Their bold brilliance blinding me

For it’s all the eye can see

Beauty fair reminding me

Of God’s massive pageantry.

 

See love and care, row on row

Flowers in a garden grow

Showing us the scant we know

Of things above, things below.

For this earth’s been gayly crowned

Blessings flow and wealth abound,

 

Flourish both with sight and sound

In display born of the ground.

When you look upon the hill

Laugh with each glad daffodil

Absorb the joyous sight until

Both heart and mind wax ever still.
