A Colourful Old Gal



Why do grey skies make us so blue Well, we don't literally turn blue It's describes the sad mood it creates Leaving us sombre and we brood The big yellow sun make everyone smile We delight at the green of the hills Old Mother Earth is a colourful old gal She can change our outlook at will Brown is surely not one of our favourites Reminds us of you know what The colour purple acts much like blue In a sad situation we're caught Black surely has a negative connotation Reminds us of funerals and death The colour white has the opposite effect But ghosts can take away our breath All things considered we need these colours Can you imagine if bananas were pink Lavender corn sure wouldn't be appealing I'd swear off certain foods methinks! © Jack Ellison 2013

    Yea but red roses are for the heart, yellow is for friendship... Orange is for my Tulip Tree... And Dragon keeps fertilizing them... He says he wants to help... If he keeps it up... Yellow will be for the stars he sees... LOL
