Wild Weekly Photo Challenge – Green

Shades of Green

The most famous puppet of all time, Kermit the frog (from Sesame Street and The Muppets fame), must have been deep in thought when he came up with his song, It’s Not Easy Being Green

Kermit begins with a lament that there’s nothing really special about being green. It’s just an ordinary color – the color of leaves. In fact, green is so ordinary, people often don’t even notice it.

It’s not that easy being green;
Having to spend each day the color of the leaves.
When I think it could be nicer being red, or yellow or gold…
or something much more colorful like that.

It’s not easy being green.
It seems you blend in with so many other ord’nary things.
And people tend to pass you over ’cause you’re
not standing out like flashy sparkles in the water
or stars in the sky.

It’s not all lamentations, though! Kermit’s song takes a turn as he remembers all the great things about green. It’s the color of spring, it’s a cool and friendly color, it’s big like the ocean, important like a mountain, and tall like a tree.  Green is a beautiful color! 

But green’s the color of Spring.
And green can be cool and friendly-like.
And green can be big like an ocean, or important like a mountain,
or tall like a tree.

When green is all there is to be
It could make you wonder why, but why wonder why?
Wonder, I am green and it’ll do fine, it’s beautiful!
And I think it’s what I want to be.

No, it’s not easy being green. But…boy, is it ever worth the trouble!

going groen, verde, vert, grönt, grün, cæruleus, grønn, glas…green,

    • I’m surely hoping Imelda! (I got home this evening to see my 1st sign of spring at my mailbox – one of my jonquils had opened – early, yes, but the splash of yellow was like my own little personal ball of sunshine, waiting to greet me as the sky darkened) 🙂
