Why does the air smell green when it rains?

Your feet got wet in the grass
and you wanted a bath to wash the cold away.
So we went to bed late and bathed.
I would give you anything –
I would give you the ocean just to say
The world is yours.

[One day we will go to the sea]

For now, a basin,
A hand on your waist to say
We're home now and safe.

[Dip your toes in.
In the morning the air will still be green]
