Yellow (Colour Poem)

Yellow are the taxi tops
the butterflies and bumblebees
juicy lemons, sunflower
and falling leaves.

Yellow is for egg yolk
a fever's name,
the colour of yellow pages directory
the warning card given to players.

Yellow is for sun
ornaments of gold,
colour of papers
that are preserved and old.

Yellow are the mustard fields
the colour of banana peel that
I stepped on and tripped
also a colour of wisdom and intellect.

Yellow is for charming smilies
for youth, exhuberence and cowardice
yellow is for warmth and inspiration
to make people smile is its purpose.

A well articulated piece of poetry, nicely encapsulated and insightfully penned with conviction. A lovely poem that depicts the beauty of yellow as a colour. Thanks for sharing. Please read my poem MANDELA - THE IMMORTAL ICON.

Great writings on colors, both white and yellow. I think my little girl Preeti would look very pretty in yellow too.
