The color of love must be green, you say
for it grows like a winding vine
It must be multi-colored, I say
like ripened fruit we pluck from that vine
The color of sweet wine
pressed from the grape
No, I say it’s white
for its purity shown in the afterglow
And it’s also bright gold
like the sun after a cleansing rain
A mellow yellow
And surely red
like life’s blood coursing thru our veins
