The dawn was apple-green, The sky was green wine held up in the sun, The moon was a golden petal between. She opened her eyes, and green They shone, clear like flowers undone For the first time, now for the first time seen. D. H. Lawrence
I found this beautiful poem by DH Lawrence in a book I picked up at a car boot sale last summer. The thing that I personally love about poetry and prose, is that for me, it is painting with words. In this sketch of ‘green’ we see a vivid colour so beautifully described, it reminds me of the glowing green wings of an emerald moth. I also love that the colour of the book is similar – this photo unfortunately doesn’t do it justice.
See you this Wednesday for the Connect to Nature Creative Writing class. To celebrate the start of the summer holidays this week’s theme will focus on species found in rock pools for a virtual visit to the coast.
See you there.
