kids playing in the yard, and fathers away at war. "kids will catch them as they fall". the dark and the light maybe.


pink pastel and blue-vermilion
in the sky the clouds are coming
down the street into the school yard
where pinky green is playing with william

william has a horse of crimson
he rides all the way to scotland
over the pond into the west wind
and pinky green is making a painting

green and blue, red and yellow
all the colors of the rainbow
arms and legs and feet and faces
covered in colors when pinky paints them

towers rising, solders march to the war
but kids will catch them, as they fall

who will tell me, when daddy will come home
i wait all day, i hope he' s safe and strong
