How Yellow was Made

How Yellow was Made

Once upon a time -

When Time itself was new
There lived an old God,
Who was bored of boring Blue

When He made the oceans,

'Big and Blue', he thought,

While sitting knitting skies,

He used the Blue a lot

Now Blue was old and bored Him

Though Red and Green were good
But He wanted something fresh -

Something cheerful while he could

On a Green hill he sat,
And thought of petals bright,
And of breeze and of bliss,

And of the Red of twilight.

And so came to be Be

A dancing flower of Daffodil;

He created with his thoughts -

Yellow on a Green hill!

So content He was that day,

So blissful and so happy,

That dancing yellow daffodils,

Are Godly and will always be.
