Oh! Green, Stay Green!

Poem By Valsa George

In the brilliant spectrum of rainbow hues,
Oh, Green! Thou art a ravishing shade.

You glow and fade in distant skies,
You hide beneath the oceans deep,
You make the Earth so cheery to live,
You ward off famine and assure wealth,
You signal movement and ensure health,
You sooth the eyes and cool the hearts.

In the brilliant spectrum of rainbow hues,
Oh, Green! Thou art a ravishing shade.

Green is the garb; God gave the Earth to wear,
Green is the harbinger of blooming spring,
Green – the forests that is home to beasts,
Green – the meadows, where the cattle graze,
Green – the prairies that stretch afar,
Green – the lawns that adorn the homes,
Green – the tuft of grass that grows beneath,
Green – the unripe fruits that hangs from boughs.

In the brilliant spectrum of rainbow hues,
Oh, Green! Thou art a ravishing shade.

But Alas! The Green is fast fading out,
The verdant Earth, turned into an arid stretch,
Life made so horrid for man and beast,
And Nature mourns her doleful plight,
Toil hard to usher the Green again,
Never let the trees fall and rot,
Take from Nature just enough to make you go,
And keep in reserve what is due for the ones to come!

In the brilliant spectrum of rainbow hues,
Oh, Green! Thou art a ravishing shade.

Comments about Oh! Green, Stay Green!

how come PH shows a submission date of 2009? and NOW i see i commented in 2013 on this and you commented (first) on my 'Green' poem. and i also put in MyPoemList back then! ! bri (:
i could say a lot about this lovely (in structure and description) poem, mostly 'positive', but let me only say (due to lack of time/space, ha ha) : nice poem. to MyPoemList. Thanks for sharing. may you NEVER get the dreaded green skin. use makeup if you MUST be green! ! bri (:
Brilliant spectrum of rainbow motivates mind with its green colour. Sometimes this glows and fades in sky. Life and nature both are made basing up on greenness of green colour. Green is the brilliant spectrum of rainbow. Wonderful message is transferred through this poem...10
a one colour poem brilliantly written so in fact that I feel envious of your colourful descriptive writing? ............well penned.
Peace! 'Never let the trees fall and rot'. Nice piece of work.

Poet

Wielding a tool, mighty and spiky
Mightier than either the sword or rod
He reigns, monarch in Fancy's domain
Sketching life in fanciful colour and mode

To My Anonymous Lover

Somewhere in a strange land
An unknown heart throbs for me
Etching an amorous graffiti
On the blank walls of my mind

Winged Words

Like a creature hibernating in its burrow
Waiting to come out with the first verdure of spring
The seed of a poem lay dormant in my heart
Through the long winter awaiting another spring

Dust Unto Dust

The briny tears have dried
The sounding knells are stilled
The grieving crowd, dispersed
The parting pain, allayed

Eagle On Wings

Have you watched an eagle in flight?
On wings flayed, it looks a massive kite
It shoots into the heights with unlabored ease
Enjoying the kiss of passing breeze

A Song Of Hope

When the pall of gloom overcasts my mind
And at cross roads bewildered I stand
I tell myself
This shall pass
