Touched by Green – Kay Salady

Touched by Green
I am thankful for the green that springs forth from the dew
And I am ever grateful for each blossom rich with hue
That gives my ordinary days a small piece of delight
Along the mud stained avenues that run before my sight
When in puzzled swaying thought I strive to see the seed
Within the deep redeeming soil to fill my inner need
A bud exists for me alone so rare and so divine
I am assured that it will grow in the proper time
To fill my eyes with rapture and to elate my mind
Then on my gray and rainy day this bit of green I find
Fills me with thanksgiving beyond the deepest measure
A sprig with just a touch of hue gives enormous pleasure
