Green


Said a mother to her daughter
Don't you want to be seen
In the skin your parents made you
Why would you prefer green?

Said the daughter to her mother
Mama, what a sad sound
Not that green is any better
I don't want to be brown

Said the mother to her daughter
You don't need to go that far
Just remember, ever, ever
Love yourself for who you are

poet Paul Laurence Dunbar

The mist has left the greening plain,
The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
The coquette rose awakes again
Her lovely self adorning.

The Wind is hiding in the trees,
