Orange is for a pumpkin big and round.
Yellow is for leaves that fall to the ground.
Red is for an apple ripe for eating.
Green is for monsters that go trick or treating.
Brown is for a football, thrown down the field.
Purple is for grapes from the bountiful yield.
Blue is the sky what a wonderful sight.
Black is for cats that howl in the night.
White is the moon looking quite luminescent;
Sometimes it shines in the shape of the crescent.
Pink strips at sunset, ending our day.
Tan is the scarecrow – the color of hay.
Gray are the shadows of geese flying by.
Kaleidoscope colors that lift our hearts high.
