Poem: Walls of Green


Your emerald corridors leave unseen
All that hides behind walls of green
Sunlight that dapples on floors of jade
Birds in the foliage that sway in the shade
Tiny white flowers that dazzle the bush
Colour that daintily comes through to push
What was ours, now overgrown
As Mother Nature takes back her own
Pushing through cracks, creeping on ground
Until all green again both above and around
Beneath a blue sky, and water that flows
Behind walls of green that nobody knows
