What is Green?

by Mary O’Neill

Green is the grass
And the leaves of trees
Green is the smell
Of a country breeze . . .

Green is a coolness
You get in the shade
Of the tall old woods
Where the moss is made.

Green is a flutter
That comes in Spring
When frost melts out
Of everything.

Green is a grasshopper
Green is jade
Green is hiding
In the shade
Green is an olive
And a pickle.

The sound of green
Is a water-trickle.
Green is the world
After the rain
Bathed and beautiful
Again . . .

Green is the meadow,
Green is the fuzz
That covers up
Where winter was.
Green is ivy and Honeysuckle vine.
Green is yours
Green is mine . . .

Saves she all of that for Sunsets
Prodigal of Blue

Spending Scarlet, like a Woman
Yellow she affords
Only scantly and selectly
Like a Lover’s Words.

By Silvina Rocha
Illustrated by Lucía Mancilla Prieto

Mateo received a present: a notebook with smooth white pages that called out to him to draw. So Mateo drew. He drew a happy red cat. As the days went by the cat lost his smile. Mateo worried and decided to add more drawings so his cat would be happy again. He did this again and again until he realized that this was not the solution. Then he started to think about what he could do to make his cat happy again. Finally, he discovered the secret…
