The Colours of Hydrangea

happy to wear the colours of hydrangea
fifteen petticoats and a mysterious glow
we came up in the summer times

and longed for snow
and read the story of the snow maiden secretly

in the space age they said we favor science
over the fairy tales but I asked now
when the leaves became crimson unexpectedly

under my breath so as not to disturb

the focus of the class
what fairy tale is greater than Space
oh please, think fast

if not the every day's "at lasts"?
