Colours

Before I loved or knew you were
I spoke as I had eyes,
Gladly remarking grasses green
And sapphire skies.

Pleased with the coloured world I had,
I knew no further need:
And then you lifted up my lids -
I see indeed.

Before I looked in love of you
It seems I never knew
That grass could be so grassy-green
And air so blue.
