Yellow (Colour poem)


Yellow are the taxi tops
the butterflies and bumblebees
juicy lemons, sunflower
and falling leaves.

Yellow is for egg yolk
a fever's name,
the colour of yellow pages directory
the warning card given to players.

Yellow is for sun
ornaments of gold,
colour of papers
that are preserved and old.

Yellow are the mustard fields
the colour of banana peel that
I stepped on and tripped
also a colour of wisdom and intellect.

Yellow is for charming smilies
for youth, exhuberence and cowardice
yellow is for warmth and inspiration
to make people smile is its purpose.

    Great writings on colors, both white and yellow. I think my little girl Preeti would look very pretty in yellow too. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Algernon Charles Swinburne

I hid my heart in a nest of roses,
Out of the sun's way, hidden apart;
In a softer bed than the soft white snow's is,
Under the roses I hid my heart.
