Circles of colour

Two line poem:

Circles of two colours

Who marked their numbers?

A four line poem:

Chopped vegetables gathered in heaps

Greens, whites, oranges, I see

Glistening under the kitchen lights

I admire my handiwork with glee

An excerpt from a poem by W.B. Yeats:

When you are Old

“When you are old and gray and full of sleep

and nodding by the fire, take down this book,

and slowly read, and dream of the soft look,

your eyes had once, and of their shadows deep;”

The rest of Yeats’ poem is here.
