Blue the color of you
Calming, Chopping, Chattering you
Home beloved, Life giving, Life taking you
Earth-wide, Cloud-wide, Being-wide, you.
Green the color of your tarns
Simulacrum charm of the mountain's youth
Trees and Leaves and Reeves, you
Captured in the morning dew.
White the color of your wisps
Fluffy dust-lights from the sky, you
Falling to the agog earth below you
Arresting to the land, the trees, the me's beneath, you.
Grey the color of you bedraggled
Filched and Hallowed, Imbibed, you
Heedless of our greed for you
Needless of our feed of you.
Transparent the color of your strength
To Fill and Bleed and Lead us, you
In the wind and as the rain you
Play with us a maritime game.
For we will come and we will go
But you will always flow.
