memorial day poem

are trees as green as they ever were?
I feel they are but cannot know
green of a long time ago
could it be a leaf is not the green
it used to be? if so if now
something has changed in what we see
only the oldest tree knows when or how
tree if I could find you    if you exist
I would ask what was that color
if it was     I’m not too sure
what then would you say?
it’s shady here     sit awhile
you won’t know today
