Yellow

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.
