“It’s a yellow day,” Maud said.
But everything inside and outside
looked green (we live in a

is a yellow day,” she repeated.
“Because the sun is shining.”

Q: So what’s the enigma here (since I tagged this with enigma)?
A: The enigma lies more in the facts that are left unsaid (ellipsis) but are hinted at.
Q: I see. … Why do you consider this a happy poem?
A: Because the sun is out in it and the colors mentioned are bright and cheerful. Perfect ingredients of a spring day.
Chortles! Sound the trumpet.Come into the garden Maude and chop onions avec moi.
A yellow day in the midst of green. I love the action/reaction, the give and take quality of this conversation driven piece. And I am particularly pleased by it’s upbeat attitude.
A definite positive. Perception is everything.
