YELLOW

No magic transcends

A full yellow moon shining

On a frosted night.

Solitary star

Brilliance of a million moons

Lights upon the earth.

River freed from ice

Flowing fast through golden fields

Sweet sunshine abounds.

Each flowery spring

The beautiful buttercup

A gift of the field.

Divine daffodil

Magnificent marigold

Bouquet for mother.

A glorious weed

Tufted dandelion seeds

Floating on the breeze.

Withered autumn leaves

Fade from gold and red to brown

Usher in the fall.

Winter cold and white

Sun hides in clouds and fog

Yellow disappears.
