Colours

Written by: Jack Ellison



I've pondered this since I was a child What makes the grass so green I know there's a logical explanation Sure seems like some magical scheme To explain why oceans are a deep indigo Or the cerulean blue sky up above The rising sun is a bright yellow ball Why magenta is the colour of love Pink is associated with a baby's skin As we cuddle and snuggle and coo Mauve is usually the colour of sadness When life throws a curve at you The colour of nature is a wonder to behold Artists have tried to capture its magic What if the world was just shades of grey Sure would be sad and quite tragic So pray when you wake up each morning Nature's colours will still be the same It's what makes this world a joy to behold And its beauty continues to reign © Jack Ellison 2013
