Green Valentine

The green in the rainbow
is not the green in the meadow
but what fell to earth like a blow
darkening into the bruise of matter
from which the earth was made
hardening into emerald and jade
the offspring of yellow and blue
who kept their spiritual value
while fallen green agreed to die
after a long vigorous life on earth
sweeping the nations before it
only if after the glory of autumn
and winter’s abysmal blue
yet some new green ensue
