A Beautiful Rivalry

Kelly, sea, emerald, pine

the vibrant life-green seems unshy–

sage, and hunter, every shade

to bandy beauties with the sky.

Blue as vivid heaven’s soul

unrivaled here in realms of clouds,

it sweeps election every day

most popular, and bright and Loud.

But hear a word for foliage:

you never notice life around

till suddenly its color splays

like emerald robes from sky to ground.

I’ll not choose a winner here

too mortal, small, I sit to see

the rival beauty chaos play

that dresses springtime just for me.
