Vivian Kurkjian: Love's Colors

I met him once
when we were very young
and green was the color we chose.

A thousand years
have passed a thousand hues
and love has come again,
dressed in blue.

This poem has previously appeared in Garig Basmajian's Armenian-American poets: a bilingual anthology, published by AGBU in 1976.
