It's not easy being green ...

It's not that easy being green
Having to spend each day the colour of the leaves

When I think it could be nicer being red, or yellow or gold
Or something much more colourful like that

It's not easy being green
It seems you blend in with so many other ordinaray things
And people tend to pass you over 'cause you're
Not standing out like flashy sparkles in the water

Or stars in the sky
But green's the colour of Spring

And green can be cool and friendly-like
And green can be big like an ocean or important
Like a mountain, or tall like a tree

When green is all there is to be
It could make you wonder why, but why wonder why wonder ?
I am green and it'll do fine, it's beautiful
And I think it's what I want to be


  1. I love Kermit.....

    Someday I'll find it, the rainbow connection, the lovers, the dreamers and me....

  2. "In the summer time, when all the leaves and trees are green,
    And the red bird sings, then I'll be blue..."

    Those muppets sure sang some good songs.

    Sybil, you already have a green thumb. If I were you I'd stop at that.

    Wonderful post with beautiful photos.

  3. Thanks Sandy and Amy-Lynn,

    Ya gotta love good ol' Kermit (and Jim Hensen).
