Green is Groovy!

Welcome, welcome glorious March
Whose soggy kiss we yearn
To turn the days of darkness bright
And hearld spring's return
Let warming rain turn winter's grip awry
And thaw the frozen land
That life anew will bloom once more
When coax'd by April's hand

Yesterday the twig was brown and bare;
To-day the glint of green is there;
Tomorrow will be leaflets spare;
I know no thing so wondrous fair,
No miracle so strangely rare.
I wonder what will next be there!
L. H. Bailey

For, sure as earth lives under snows,
And Love lives under pain,
'T is good to sing with everything,
'When green leaves come again.

From the tender first shoots . . .

to the giant tree. . .

Spring bursts forth, silently.

How important are leaves to us
their beauty for all of us to see
delicate, colourful and intricate
leaves are the Invisible Artists creation


In spring
The tender leaves spring
And release the coiled mind to spring
And fling
The thing
That till then did wring.

As I ventured to the Wood

As I ventured to the wood,
A fallow deer of limpid eye
Gave care to glance at lucky I.
The heavenly aura 'bout her glow had
Charmed me, like a fine Bordeaux.

Make Me See Green Leaves

Back to the forest
and streams.
Back to the light,
you I see.
At the base of the tree,
grows a vine.
On the vine grow,
the loveliest leaves.
Green is the color,
I dreamed. 

The Maze

When I Was A Young Girl

WHEN I was a young girl, all in a green arbor,
When I was a young girl in Springtimes gone by
All the long days I went singing and smiling,
Down by the roses the sweet days beguiling,
Love in the arbor and love in the sky . .

Lavender-Tinted Rain
Lilac and mauve were the raindrops

Upon a setting of forest-green.

Shimmering with pristine vitality

Was the lavender-tinted rain.

I'm dreaming of a garden green
filled with flora and produce!

Just to add a little humor, a grass-covered car! 
What perfect greenery for Springtime! ; )

Of course, we mustn't forget the Irish (and St. Patrick's Day on March 17th)! For green is their favorite color
and 4-leaf clovers, their favorite plant!

Sometimes, I could jump for joy, 
when I think of all that is green!

Only one word can define it!
Green is . .
