Another Poem: If Spring Were a Color

I recently wrote a post about the color of spring.

As I looked for my jigsaw poem, I found the following, one of several poems I wrote in April 2013:


If spring were a color
it would be green
of tree buds and grass shoots
and in the Crayola canon it is

If spring were a color
it would be yellow      
of sunshine, daffodils and forsythia

If spring were a color
it would be blue
of robins’eggs and sky

If spring were a color
it would be purple
of crocuses and lilacs

If spring were a color
it would be white
of pear blossoms that fall like confetti

If spring were a color
it would be pink
of cherry blossom trees along the national mall

If spring were a color
it would be a rainbow
of warmth, hope and renewal.
