Ebony McDonaldExample


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.
