What saturated colours bring
To any subject you may cite
Is vividness, portrayed in light.
Whenever lively bronze bells ring,
Deep notes roll out and resonate...
Deep colours, too, reverberate.
A cloudy day, far from a curse,
Provides diffusion that's ideal
For colours with profound appeal.
Bright light is almost always worse
If saturation is your aim;
It harshly treats all things the same.
Diffused light is the cream of cream
When colour is your major theme.
If contrast is what you desire,
Then find yourself a blinding fire.
