What is Black?
Black is dark like a lark
Black is the color of tires
Black is the color of a dog
Black is the color of  night
Black is bed time
Black is evil
Black is bad luck
Black is a cat
Black is Halloween
Black is fear
Black is a scary story
Black is a creeping monster
Black is a shadow
Black is the ink of a pen
Black is closing your eyes
Black is a bow-tie
Black is a lie
Black is a graveyard
Black is an eclipse
Black is a cold winter night
when the winds make fight
Black is no light
That is Black

Green

Green, the color of a ripe Granny Smith apple.
Green, the color of the grass that I roll and tumble on.
Green, the color of the new leaves on an oak tree.
Green, the color of a flower stem breaking the soil and trying to reach the welcoming sun.

Green, the color that welcomes spring.

Green, the color of the go light that lets the color go-go-go through the warm and colorful spring.

Blue

Are you sad?
Or feeling low?
This might hit you with a blow.
For how many things can blue mean?
1,2,3,4
Or more?
The blues are jazzy
Blue is sad
Blue could be a color
Blue could be the feelings of your mother
Of course, none of these are bad.
But they could make you mad.
Blue is the ocean, sky and sea
They are as beautiful as can be.

Orange is the smell of a Tiger-Lilly petal.
Orange is the feeling after a baby smiles.
