Most likely colour to disappoint
when decorating a room
but get it right, it will lift your heart --
the colour of sun and moon.
Most likely colour to disappear
in some of its manifestations.
Some hues will fade as flowers in spring
but amber outlasts our adorations.
A colour to savour, a colour that smiles,
a pigment to mix with the brightest and best --
as autumn does, as oranges do.
A beauty of nature, made manifest.
There are yellows more luscious than purples on popes
when adorning the female form
and blessed is the soul that wakes to its light
when it bathes the whole world at the dawn.
There are flowers like the jonquil --
a powerhouse, you'll find --
so blushingly bright...
even seen by the blind.
themselves a shade below par --
that's in the bedroom
