If I had to be blue, I would be a bluebird,
wild, with a song on the wing.
If I had to be yellow, I would be a sun,
all bursting shine and warmth.
If I had to be red, I would be an apple,
firm on the outside and sweet within.
If I had to be green, I would be pine and spruce,
mountain grown and fragrant tall.
If I had to be white, I would be snow,
crystalline and heartsong pure.
A rainbow of colors, I would love to be
with a touch of melancholy to make up the me.
