Yearning for Yellow

Written by: Corinne Curcio

Gray buildings 
Gray skies
Gray city
That’s what we see 5 days a week

Our time is spent
In offices
Pushing paper
We’re in need of some relief

The sun is the one
Who should hang in the sky
No more gloominess
Yellow light, hear our cry

We’re Yearning for Yellow 
To shine all around 
Envelope us - surround
Casting its hue like a golden net
To brighten our lives
Let yellow light abound

Rain
Thundering
Dark, black clouds
Will these dreary shadows ever fade? 

We need 
Radiance
Filling us up
For amber light I would surely trade

The sun is the one
Who should hang in the sky
No more gloominess
Yellow light, hear our cry

Luminosity, everything’s revealed
Joy everywhere, no longer concealed

We’re Yearning for Yellow 
To shine all around 
Envelope us - surround
Casting its hue like a golden net
To brighten our lives
Let yellow light abound
