Green


Green looks like the grass that cows and lambs nibble on all day
Green smells like the sweet feijoas ripening in the garden
Green tastes like home made lime flavoured jelly
Green feels like my sister's school uniform

Green looks like the leaves on the trees
Green smells like the toxic potions the witches make
Green tastes like garlic on the garlic bread
Green feels like my plastic lunch box

poet Sir John Suckling

Dost see how unregarded now
That piece of beauty passes?
There was a time when I did vow
To that alone;
But mark the fate of faces;
