The poem GREEN by D H Lawrence is posted here to mark the UK's National Poetry Day which is to be held on 8th October. One small poem for mankind.
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 (1885 - 1930)
