The leaf’s not green

Scary it is, to comprehend, to understand,

The leaves are not green,colourless dreamland.

Life’s still short, but the beauty’s gone,

Now lifeless is the crayon

 

Pale and drawn have we become.

Black and white our wisdom,

Are we what we really see,

Or just visions from another fantasy?

 

‘Cause the leaf’s not green

And the sky’s not blue

Life is just playing with us

So shading the hues

 

And thus fools we are

Everything but what we see

The shades and colours

Dance about thus merrily.

 

So think thus of philosophy

Of balance and the boundary

Everything not what it seems

Still colourful the dreams.

 

‘Cause the leaf’s not green

And the sky’s not blue

Life is just playing us

So shade the hues

 

What use the world,

What use these words,

Lets take the crayons and play,

And colour the world away.

 

And so at rest will this Beauty

Keep the smoldering anxiety.

And fill our hearts with new joy

New and old colours there to enjoy.

 

The Leaf ‘s not green

And the sky not blue

But till my eyes open,

I will enjoy these hues.
