  1. Yellow
  2. By David McCord

    Green is go

    And red is stop

    And yellow is peaches with cream on top.

    Earth is brown 

    And Blue is sky

    Yellow looks good on a butterfly.

    Clouds are white,

    Black, pink or mocha;

    Yellow is a dish of tapioca.

  3. Colors
  4. By Margaret E. Sangster

    I love color

    I love flaming reds,

    And vivid greens,

    And royal flaunting purples.

    I love the startled rose of the sun at dawning,

    And the blazing orange of it at twilight.

  5. Roses are Red, Leaves are Green
  6. By Unknown

    Roses are red

    Leaves are green 

    Nature is so beautiful

    That makes it look so serene. 

    Roses are red 

    Leaves are green

    I was looking for you

    where’ve you been

    Roses are red

    Leaves are green

    The presence of you

    makes nature clean.

    Roses are red 

    Leaves are green

    Do not pluck the flower

    And be mean. 

    Roses are red 

    Leaves are green 

    You are the favorite 

    flower of the queen.

  7. Color
  8. By Christina Rossetti

    What is pink? a rose is pink

    By a fountain’s brink,

    What is red? a poppy’s red

    In its barley bed.

    What is blue? the sky is blue

    Where the clouds flout thro’

    What is white? a swan is white

    Sailing in the light.

    What is yellow? pears are yellow,

    Rich and ripe and mellow.

    What is green? the grass is green,

    With small flowers between.

    What is violet? clouds are violet,

    In the summer twilight.

    What is orange? Why, an orange,

    Just an orange. 

  9. October
  10. By Annette Wynne

    Black and gold and red and brown,

    Olive, pink, and blue,

    What a riot of a gown

    What a medley hue!

    What a way to go about

    Crimson cloak and vest!

    October is a dancer

    Dancing down the West

  11. Through Your Eyes
  12. By Ronald D Thompson

    Is the sky blue and the grass green?

    It has to be because I’ve seen.

    But your green might be my blue,

    I’m sorry that just wouldn’t do.

    If the sky you see is my red,

    I think I’d lie down in my bed.

    What if your grass is my pink?

    I’d have to say that would stink!

    Pink grass and red sky,

    Dear oh dear, I’d surely die.

    I’m glad my blue is my blue,

    As far as I’m concerned that will do.

    And I like my grass the green I see,

    For how else could it ever be?

    Don’t want to see through your eyes,

    Just might scare me with surprise!

  13. All Green
  14. By John Niederbuhl

    The leaves on the trees are all green

    Green, green, green, green, green.

    Calling us to life

    Do you know what I mean?

    The leaves on the trees are all green

    Green, green, green, green, green.

    Even on the darkest night

    Do you know what I mean?

    The leaves on the trees are all green

    Green, green, green, green, green.

    They sing in the wind

    Do you know what I mean?

    The leaves on the trees are all green

    Green, green, green, green, green.

    Like I’ve always loved you 

    Do you know what I mean?

  15. Color Me Happy
  16. By Arden Davidson

    If I were the color blue,

    I’d sing sad songs for you.

    If I were the color yellow,

    I’d be a happy fellow.

    If I were the color red

    I’d look like me when I bled.

    If I were the color green,

    I’d grow like a big string bean.

    If I were the color brown,

    I’d be a chocolate town.

    If I were the color pink,

    I’d be a lemony drink.

    If I were the color purple,

    Nothing would rhyme with me.

  17. Five Little Crayons
  18. By Unknown

    Five little crayons colored a scene.

    Yellow, blue, orange, red and green.

    “Look,” said Yellow, “My sun is bright!”

    Blue said, “Great! My river’s just right”

    Orange said, “Flowers! I’ll draw

    something new”

    Red said, “Great, I’ll add some too!”

    “Sigh,” said Green, “I’m tired of trees,

    And grass and bushes and tiny leaves. I

    think I’ll draw a big green cloud!”

    “A big green cloud should be allowed!”

    The crayons all smiled and didn’t think twice.

    A big green cloud sounded rather nice!
