What is Pink? A rose is Pink, By the fountain's brink.
                    What is Red? A poppy's Red, In its barley bed.
                        What is Blue? The sky is Blue, Where the clouds float through.
                       What is White? A swan is White,Sailing in the light.
                        What is Yellow? A pear is Yellow, Rich and ripe and mellow.
                What is Green? The grass is Green, With small flowers between .
                          What is Violet? Clouds are Violet, In a Summer twilight.
                      What is Orange? Why, an Orange, Just an Orange!
