Nature’s Colourful Preferences
“Blue and green should not be seen
Without a colour in between;
And as for the clash of green and red,
Enough, I am sure, has now been said”;
But who will give this wisdom to Nature?
Or bravely try to correct the Creator?
Life on earth is so much richer
For its clash of colours; this a feature of
Identity, movement, and time passing; of
Family, food, and enemies pausing.
Blue & green and green & red
Are seen in life and everywhere,
From the depth of the oceans
To out among the stars.
What profusion and confusion of colours !
But this procedure is not wise
When we classify people by their shape and size,
And by the colour of their unclad skin:
That shows an intellect dismal and thin.
Let blue and green be seen in the sunlight;
And red and green go dancing as one. Right !
