- What Matters
Green is the sound of grass, lightly swaying in the soft summer breeze;
And green is the sound of lily pads floating in a pond.
Green is the smell of fresh mint, just cut from the garden, and green
Is the smell of sour pickles, swimming in a bucket of their own juice.
Green is the taste of mint-chocolate chip ice cream, chilly and sweet;
And green is the taste of a cucumber; cold against your palette.
Green is the feel of a frog’s bumpy, slimy skin; and green
Is the feel of a slithering snake, long and slippery.
Green is the color of a shirt on St. Patrick’s day, bright and bold;
And green is also the color of a tree, the branches climbing to the sky.
Green is the way of forgiving, lending us air, giving us food;
And green is Earth.
