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
