Words of Color

Gray is the color of a gloomy cloud,
Gray is the color of a knight standing proud,
On a bright sunny day
My shadow is gray.

Gray can be tame or gray can be insane,
Maybe even the color of pain.
Gray is the color when your oven’s smokin’
Gray is the color when your heart is broken.

Written by fifth grader Max Raber
Illustrated by Ann Troe.
