The world sees red but passion is all it actually sees
The blue sky screams of naught but a beautiful calm
The earth brings out green which to the learned is wealth
And in a class of its own, royal purple speaks of its elegance.
To the body, white is like peaceful waters flowing
The orange glow of twilight twinkles that the world may rest
The leaves in their brown shade tells of the practicality of time
And the yellow light of the sun shines for all to see with.
The enviable innocence of babes is foretold by none but pink
The grey crown of old age bears the wisdom of years past
The black drone of dusk reminds man of when life would no more be
If only men would look and reflect on the beauty and wisdom of nature.
