Yellow

Our Ode to the First Color of Spring

Walking down the yellow brick road this Spring,//On the sunny side.//An amber dream of marigolds//In the light of a golden sun.//Van Gogh’s yellow//Sunflowers.//The flight of canaries//Among laburnum blossoms//And the floating trail of a goldfish in a sunlit pool.//The soft yellow silhouette//Of her pleated skirt//Lost somewhere on the streets//In Spring.//Narrow sunlit mornings//Warm lazy afternoons//And the pale glow of dusk.//This happy colour//Of things new//And of memory//Deeply settle in tones of sepia.//Yellow days, yellow dresses, yellow flowers,//Yellow shoes, lemons, the song Yellow//And Cool Bananas.
