Three Tales of Madness and Destruction
I . Colours (by Shirley Hughes)
Yellow syrup dripping from a spoon,
A harvest moon.
Sun like honey on the floor,
warm as the steps by our back door.
Baby blues, navy blues, blue shoes,
Blue plate, blue mug,
blue flowers in a blue jug.
And fluffy white clouds floating by
In a great big beautiful bright blue sky.
Rosy apples, dark cherries,
Scarlet leaves, bright berries.
And when the winter's day is done,
A fiery sky, a big red sun.
Yellow and Blue make Green:
Grasshoppers, greenflies, gooseberries, cat's eyes.
Green lettuce, green peas,
Green shade from green trees.
And grass as far as you can see
Like green waves in a [deep] green sea.
Yellow and Red make Orange:
Tangerines and apricots,
Orange flowers in orange pots.
Orange glow on an orange mat
Marmalade toast and a marmalade cat.
Blue and Red make Purple:
Berries in the bramble patch.
Pick them (but mind the thorns don't scratch).
Purple blossom, pale and dark,
Spreading with springtime in the park.
