something silly...just for spring...

today i saw quite a wonderful thing,

there, on my window, the first bug of spring.

as i opened the door to shoo it away,

it flew off with a wink, and i heard it say:

oh, red are the roots of the cormorant tree,

and orange the sap that flows all through me,

yellow's the color of all that is fair,

and green is a ribbon to wear in your hair.

blue are the clouds when the moonlight is bright,

and indigo sings like a nightingale's flight;

violet's the color of all that you are,

and white is the love that shines through the stars...
