Green Honey Tea
Colin Howe, '16

I lay on my bed today
Its vibrant green fibers greeted my back
With an elastic embrace
Tiny beads of water bounced about
Hopping crickets in the heat of August

My ceiling flutters in the wind
Singing melodies green of melancholy
Dreaming of the dreary days
When it could sip the sunlight.
A pitcher of honey-laden tea

My windows are filled with faces
They rest in an assortment of emotion
And colors, all different shades,
nodding in unison like a baseball novelty  
I can almost taste their sweetness on my tongue
