Green

Green is the colour of emeralds
Jade and growing grass
When you think of nature
This colour you wont surpass

Green brings you springtime
Along with hope bright 
Even in days of old Egyptians
Made green colour from Malachite

Ancient Greece were a bit confused
One word for blue and Green 
Though wasnt thought much of
Not counted  not fit to be seen

Romans respected the colour green
Colour of Venus, goddess of nature
Wall paintings of green plus mosaics 
Green was big in stature.

The nicest green for me is
When looking in a mirror
Emerald eyes  means calm cool
Jade eyes gives me a shiver

Means my knickers are in a twist
Someone has upset me so
If i were you I would  up and run
Me I have no where to go

    I guess green is your favorite color, worthy of at least two poems that I remember, and many references. Wonderful poem. In my mission to read some of your previous poems, I'm missing some from the last couple of months. Great work again. Color changing eyes, hmmm, now that's a wonderful characteristic, that probably no one wants to see, unless they're changing back to emerald.

    This is awesome! The last verse made me laugh. I never want to be on your bad side! ;) Also, I just wanted to thank you again for your springtime couplet - it was the perfect ending to that poem! :)
