Something Pretty For The New Year
Would someone say that brown is not a pretty color?
Well, it is if it is a glimmering opal,
Or the shiny fur of a hearty brown bear,
Or coffee, or tea, or chocolate.
Remember the luminous brown of some friends' eyes,
When they look at you fondly.
And the variously brown complexions of most people,
With the rest of us tanning to toasty brown.
Recall that the good earth of this world is brown.
We are of that good brown earth.
Mighty tree trunks are typically brown.
Just for the record, sable brown has associations with strength and reliability.
Brown is a very pretty color.
