KIDSBOOKS – COLOURS | STRAW

I am the colour of ripe corn fields 
And of the dancing daffodil
I’m the colour of cheese, if you please
And also of the pineapple

The singing canary is the same shade
As the yolk of your breakfast egg
Which is like the “get set” traffic light
And the marmalade on your bread

I’m the colour of little ducklings
Of vanilla cake and sunflowers
Some butterflies and jelly beans
Of tennis balls and bananas

I’m the colour of the fading bruise
On your knee, as it gently mellows
I’m the gleam in the sunlight healing you
I am the shimmering colour YELLOW.
