|A Tribute to Yellow||8/13/2007 05:54:00 AM|
(for Mhea L., the mellow girl crazy over it)
Oh royal, mellow yellow
How do I love thee?
I can't even count all the ways...
You're the sunshine over fields
Filled with Helianthus annnuus in bloom
Light and bright
You make me happy
The sweet Mangifera indica I crave
Or lovely Musa x paradisiaca in bunches
Yes, I want to eat more
You make me hungry
These trinkets and clips
And socks in your hue
I'm setting the trends
You make me this pretty
Papers and pencils
Notebooks in my fave shade
I start thinking up thoughts
You make me creative
I can never trade you
For any other in your spectrum
'Coz you're my only color-love!

I wrote this for my once-upon-a-time partner-in-crime in organic chem lab. It's ironic that I have never written a poem about my own favorite color (it's deep dark blue, btw...) but I wrote one for a friend's favorite color.
