The Colors of Christmas
So many wonderful memories
wrap themselves around my brain
as the colors of Christmas come alive
with every Christmas song.
Rudolph conjures up that little red nose
along with Frosty the Snowman’s black hat
and his eyes made out of coal.
Silent Night shines in that warm yellow glow of the stable
And angelic voice sing in robes of pure white.
White Christmas swirls with white snowflakes
along with Jingle Bells dashing through the snow.
Elvis brought out the Blue (in) Christmas matching our
Twenty-twenty Covid year… remembering those we love.
Who could imagine Santa Clause Coming to Town without seeing red
or the little green elves who make the toys;
Or, You’re a Mean (green) One Mr. Grinch
It Came Upon a Midnight Clear in the blue black sky
full of silver twinkling stars.
And who could forget Silver Bells ringing
above a street covered with snow…
As we Deck the Halls with Boughs of Holly crisp and green
The colors of Christmas are felt with every song
Today at d’Verse Grace took us back to the concept of Synethesia, which occurs, for example, when one sense such as music makes one see colors. It can happen with any of the senses. This evening we are looking specifically at music. I have never experienced synethesia in the literal sense, but I decided to look at how Christmas Songs automatically bring colors to mind.
