ROY G BIV


Old Newton
in his darkened room
refracting prism colours.

Red, danger
hot sunset anger
passion for blood-red planet.

Orange, sweet
half-time citrus fruit
thirst quenching energy juice.

Yellow, coward -
ice bright sunlit mustard
dazzling rape field horizon.

Green, envy
safe tranquillity
rest in lime bright fields of grass.

Blue, cold jazz
a deep depression
across sea and sky so sad.

Indigo
wise Portuguese plum
cool dusk-dyed star-spangled sky.

Violet
shy shady Spring flower
high terahertz humility.

ROY-G-BIV
spectral mnemonic
"Richard of York gave battle in vain".

Poem of the Day

poet Christopher Marlowe

Black is the beauty of the brightest day,
The golden belle of heaven's eternal fire,
That danced with glory on the silver waves,
Now wants the fuel that inflamed his beams:
