What Is Pink? - Christina Rossetti Listen

What is pink? A rose is pink,

By the fountain's brink.


What is red? A poppy' red,

In the barley bed.


What is blue? The sky is blue.

Where the clouds float through.


What is white? The swan is white,

Sailing in the light.


What is yellow? Pears are yellow,

Rich, and ripe, and mellow.


What is green? The grass is green

With small flowers between.


What is violet? Clouds are violet

In the summer twilight.


What is orange? Why, an orange,

Just an orange!
