[The original lyric was, "What is the color and the number / when happiness begins?]
What is the Color when happiness begins?
Does it start with the screaming yellows and oranges
of a young boy sledding on a lunch tray?
Is it the dark passing of an old friend
whose memory leaves a glowing stain?
of a rose, delivered by a lover
What is the Number when happiness begins?
the zeroes following a long-awaited paycheck?
I think it could use a more complete ending, but it's a start. Definitely a worthy exercise.
