Colors of Yours

Where did you get those eyes of green

catching reflections I've never seen?

In a leaf or the sea or a piece of jade

you can find green but not in that shade

and all I want is to see some more,

more of those colors of yours.

Where did you get that light brown hair?

I've never seen that color anywhere --

not in honey or dust or old wooden antiques

or running in fields of heather and weeds

and all I want is to see some more,

more of those colors of yours.

The closer I get to you the more I see

and what I see looks pretty fine

and I'll do what I have to do

just to call those colors mine.

Where did you get that half-smile from?

I think of a painting I saw once

of some Italian girl from so long ago

but her colors have faded and she's lost her glow

and who she was really, I don't know.

All I want is to see some more,

more of those colors of yours.
