Traffic Light


Traffic light with red, yellow and green,
With red warning us to stop in life,
When we go so fast we do not see.
I like that traffic light warning me.

Traffic light with orange signals,
Graciously leading us to slow down.
When we're leading our lives so fast,
With the orange in the traffic,
We cannot go fast.


Ah green, I love my green.
It's the traffic light's nicest scene.
Green is a traffic dream.
You can always keep driving, driving, driving.

    This shows how seemingly small small things enrich our lives and also provide guidance at every juncture. Thanks indeed. (Report) Reply

    Go, take warning, stop!
    Flasbing... yellow, yellow, yellow!
    Beware, caution, hesitate!
    How on earth did the horses relate? (Report) Reply
