The Woods

The many greens in our woods
Yellow green
Black green
Lime green
Golden green
Hunter’s green
Brown green

The green grass at woods edge
The difference one is topiary. cultured
One is not
Both are green
Small window into life

It’s not easy being green

by Frank Sinatra

It's not easy bein' green
Having to spend each day
The color of the leaves
When I think it could be nicer
Bein' red or yellow or gold
Or something much more colorful like that
It's not easy bein' green
It seems you blend in
With so many other ordinary things
And people tend to pass you over
'Cause you're not standing out
Like flashy sparkles on the water
Or stars in the sky
But green's the color of spring
And green can be cool and friendly like
And green can be big like a mountain
Or important like a river or tall like a tree
When green is all there is to be
It could make you wonder why
But, why wonder, why wonder?
I'm green and it'll do fine
It's beautiful and I think it's what I want to be
