Colour - Gold

Wealth and extravagance

have an association with you,

Many a fool falls for your shine

and many have died for you, too


For children we only wish

them to be as good as you,

while some chase just money,

those diggers we eschew.

You know, I don't think this poem needs any fleshing out. It is an interesting poem on the various uses of the word "gold" as an adjective, noun, or compound word. At least, that is my take on it.

It is subjective, indeed.

Jon, rather than just saying nice things, my honest opinion of this is that there's more work to be done. It seems to require another stanza to give the reader a better idea of what it's about and bring the piece into focus. But as I've just added a bit more to one of my old poems possibly that's the mind-set I'm in at the moment. Poetry is so subjective alas.
