On Shades of Black

Still Red
The black stands out because of blue
And yellow from the former green.
We did whatever we could do.
Some of it was never seen.

    HeHe.. Extended Other First Version:

    “In the town where I was born
    Lived a man who sailed to sea
    And he told us of his life
    In the land of submarines
    So we sailed up to the sun
    ‘Til we found a sea of green
    And we lived beneath the waves
    In our yellow submarine
    We all live in a yellow submarine
    Yellow submarine, yellow submarine
    We all live in a yellow submarine
    Yellow submarine, yellow submarine
    And our friends are all aboard
    Many more of them live next door
    And the band begins to play
    We all live in a yellow submarine
    Yellow submarine, yellow submarine
    We all live in a yellow submarine
    Yellow submarine, yellow submarine
    (Full speed ahead Mr. Parker, full speed ahead
    Full speed ahead it is, Sergeant
    Action station, action station
    Aye, aye, sir, fire
    Captain, captain)
    As we live a life of ease
    Everyone of us has all we need (has all we need)
    Sky of blue (sky of blue) and sea of green (and sea of green)
    In our yellow submarine (in our yellow, submarine, ha ha)
    We all live in a yellow submarine
    Yellow submarine, yellow submarine
    We all live in a yellow submarine
    Yellow submarine, yellow submarine
    We all live in a yellow submarine
    Yellow submarine, yellow submarine
    We all live in a yellow submarine
    Yellow submarine, yellow submarine”

  2. When you couple the title On Shades of Black with the illustration you’ve offered….one understands the palette of nature. The shifting and shading….the blacks blending into the umbers and the blues…the myriad shades of green…some of them more yellowed than others. I’m reminded of the artist who simply puts down several primary colors on his palette and then begins to blend.
