Crayons: A Rainbow Poem

Crayons: A Rainbow Poem

This box contains the wash of blue sky,
spikes of green spring,
a circle of yellow sun,
triangle flames of orange and red.

It has the lime caterpillar
inching on a brown branch,
the shadow black in the center
of a grove of trees.

It holds my pink
and your chocolate
and her burnt sienna
and his ivory skin.
In it are all the colors of the world.
All the colors of the world.

~Jane Yolen, Color Me a Rhyme
