Roses are red, the cap on my cup is too.
Excitement is red all bubbling inside,
When someone says "it's a surprise!"
The valentines we exchange , the ribbon on my gift.
Yes, those are all red. But there is more!
On a hot summer day when a little breeze blows,
The smell of smoke and fire is red.
My favorite party dress with lace on the collar is all red.
When I am angry, if someone calls me names,
I am boiling with madness all through my body.
Love is red too.
All warm and sweet.
These are all red, and mostly all sweet.
