Red is the color of lava bursting out of a volcano.

Black is the color of a cave where the deadly bats live.

Gray is the color of metal that holds things together.

Brown is the color of mountains high in the sky.

Green is the color of leaves hanging on a tree.

Blue is the color of waves in the sea.

Yellow is the color of the sun out in space.

Purple is the color of wild berries hanging on a bush,

And white is the color of stars high above me.

    Let me add one more color there. It’s thank you that holds my palette. The gratitude is the inside color that puts the stars high above into my paints and makes the painter’s brush the magical wand.
