The first color of spring:
of coltsfoot, dandelions, daffodils, forsythia,
of the sun as it rises, and the moon at the full.
The color of comfort:
of cornbread, gas logs, sweet wine,
of golden apples and giant sunflowers.
The color of love:
your hair when I met you,
and my favorite dress,
the one I wore
the first time
you touched me.
