Short Kids Poem: Color

short kids color poem

You know all your colors
like purple, red and green.
But I made a new one
I’m sure you’ve never seen.

I dipped some rabbit hair
in my apple juice,
then taped it to the bum
of a charging moose.

He ran past fresh blue paint
and through a grapefruit stand.
Then scratched it off his butt
in mounds of coarse brown sand.

I dug through all the sand
and then I found the hair.
The hair had been transformed
to a new color–I swear!

My new color will shock.
impress and amaze you.
Except I think it looks
an awful lot like blue.
