a poem i wrote in '07 or 'o8, inspired by my love for my favourite colour. it went in the school mag which was nice.
The ocean blue is vast and deep.
It makes me want to fall asleep.
And if I do, then I’ll sleep well
Not hearing the ringing
Of the church’s loudest bell
Nor the constant singing
Of the echo it makes
As the nearest wall shakes.
I’ll dream of the colour
That won’t go duller
If left for a thousand years.
If it faded, there would be tears
From me and people who love the blue,
It being such a lovely hue.
And then I’ll think of the sky above,
With fluffy clouds all filled with love.
The sky of the colour that relaxes me
The sky in which I could fly free
With wings of my thought
And all that I’ve sought
For the whole of my life.
The wings that know not what is strife.
For these are the things that make me feel calm -
Like a gentle stroking on my soft, pink palm.
The colours that take away all my stress
And of this passion, I wish to confess.
So I’ll tell you all, here and now,
I love the colour blue and I don’t want a row.
And when I wake up, I’ll be content,
I’ll say what I need to and this will be meant.
And when I go to bed tonight,
I’ll be on an island where the sand is white.
(Yes, I’ll be stranded faraway,
But I’ll think of it as a holiday.)
