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.
