Colour Me Green

Colour me green like the sweet smelling grass 
     Or as green as the life-giving trees.
Colour me green like a cabbage or sprout
     Or the willows that blow in the breeze.

Colour me green like the forests and woods
    Or as green as the banks of the streams.
Bring me alive in the natural world 
   And at one with the natural scene.

Green is the colour of calmness and peace;
    It's a blend of true yellows and blues.
Green brings to everyone healing and rest
    And is calming for me and for you.
