Summer is rushing in,
and with it blooms, sunshine,
and fresh pickings.
Spring on the verge of Summer
— Yellow on the verge of Orange —
Paint it Marigold!
Prolific, sturdy, and ruffled —
— marigolds are easy,
Marigold is the freshness of yellow,
tiptoeing gingerly toward
the warmth of flame.
Marigold flowers used to be used
to give cheese a golden orange color.
Depending on its intensity
and the colors it is paired with,
marigold can range from
a whisper to a powder keg.

Between camel and orange,
marigold plays well with pinks.

Floating in a field of blue,
marigold mellows into a regal calm
befitting the plant's use as
a topical herbal remedy
for soothing skin irritations.
Light, fresh and effervescent,
marigold can pack a punch
or mellow into mellifluous dreaming
as stately and elegant as
Wallace Simpson herself.
