Grey upon grey,
the next layer,
than the one before,
a mixture twixt mizzle and mist,
with heighth, and width, and depth,
all eager to show… nothing,
to hide all,
and live for the moment
in total concealment,
avoiding avidly prying eyes
and random inquisitive glances.
Green- The Poem
Green is a colour,
dark green is duller;
but, it’s still alright.
When I was a younger fellow,
I used to like the colour yellow;
now I’m older, I’ve started to mellow
so now I like green,
you know what I mean.
Green is nature going well
with the rain, as far as I can tell.
Poets write blue, it’s how they write,
when we feel down
in the middle of the night;
and then there is black, of which I have a lack;
though I can be grey every single day.
Then there is purple,
for when I am older,
start wearing purple,
start getting colder
and then there is red
for when I am dead,
have I forgotten any other hue,
there must be millions,
and that must be true.
“Where Thou, Art?”
There was a black Hamlet,
and a white Othello,
all the youths were salad green,
and Dogberry was yellow;
Lady Macbeth was spotty,
and King Lear, he was dotty;
all in all, a colourful performance
of Shakespeare’s ‘Where Thou, Art?’
Silence is golden. It has never been much to my mind to attribute colours to things, but I suppose that we do it automatically – as a rule, though I don’t think that Golden Silence fits that rule.
Green is commonly given to envy – though not on any paint charts that I have ever seen. Red is for danger; blue signifies sadness; white – virginity and purity; green also for the untried youth who is new to the job; yellow for cowardice (though it is a ‘white; feather and not a ‘yellow’ one that was given to show people’s opinions of a ‘supposed‘ coward – I suppose the canaries complained). Pink is a girly fresh colour, and black is for evil darkness – orange is elusive (as to some things it is a mix between yellow and red – in other ways, it’s neither red or green – but, more red and less green if you see what I mean); and grey is for dull and drab and boring and bland and and and…
There are more colours (oh, yes, lots- brown, for example) and lots of various interpretations of things to match the colours – have a go and see if you can see a Scarlet Woman, a Crimson Warrior or a Blue Meany today.
Happy colouring in
