Waiting for the Greening by Elizabeth Kouhi

Brown, grey
   Spring world
When will greening
   come?
Your cousin Autumn
   At least
Flies colours for us
   to enjoy

But you. YOU, are as dull
as dishwater, and
one of your months
already gone.

True, you’ve lengthened
our days but where
IS YOUR COLOUR GREEN?
