A Hundred Shades of Grey
April 17, 2006
Let us not tell the children
That the sea and sky are always blue
Let us just invite them to look often
So they will see that its not really true
Let us not tell the children
That winter's snow is always white
Let's just insight them to look often
So they will see it is seldom right
Do not tell them that grass is always green
But teach them about the turning seasons
Do not limit their vision to what he has seen
Let's not limit them to his narrow reason
Let them behold all Her watery places
Through their own young two open eyes
So they might see His many-coloured faces
Reflected in Her rainbow-coloured skies
For in cold winter as the tired Sun goes down
When the evening sky is cast orange and mauve
Grey-brown grass is adorned with a purple crown
Snow sparkles in the blue-orange-red from above
In frosty Spring mornings' cold golden mists
The Sun-rise casts grasses in golden halos
Let children see their world not as mere tourists
Let them see black trees in purples & yellows
Let them see the colours of stormy weather
Prepare them for a hundred shades of gray
So they will be sure to keep it all together
When their own lives get rough some day
But now teach them of the sharp snow at night
Let them see that the snow is sometimes blue
Show them a black sky against silver moonlight
Let them see six billion diamonds shining true
For they must learn to see their own world
Through their own young two eyes open wide
Of a Goddess's Love - the light and dark unfurled
Of the multi-coloured Love of a God by Her side
