Mother said to me; love is green
Deceptive as a green snake slithering
In the green grass
Father said, violet comes to mind
Though love rises like the bright yellow sun
It sets as a golden egg in a setting of violet
Red as the rhinocerous beetle ; aunt differed
It pierces and sucks
Leaving you dry and empty
Love is pink and warm
Said mon ami
Sweet and beautiful all the way
But Kwame said to me
My love for you is like the rainbow
On a rainy day
The silver lining on a dark cloud
The dazzling light at the end of the tunnel
