Purple Makes Me Cry
Long ago, purple was only for the rich.
No one else could wear it, not a purple stitch.
It was just for kings and rulers of the world.
They had all the gold, the rubies, and the pearls.
But all around this gorgeous globe, purple could be found.
On flowers, clouds, and insects--why, purple does abound!
It seems to me a gift from someone way up high,
Saying we're ALL special. ~ That's why purple makes me cry.
