Favorite Quote:
"Man has his will- but woman has her way" Oliver Wendell Holmes

Red pops from strawberries like a surprise hello,
And blankets a cardinal’s regal chest,
And colors a Fuji apple in strokes.

Red pops from my freshly painted toenails,
And stains my lips from a cherry popsicle,
And colors the jelly inside of a Swedish Fish.

Red pops from a fragrant spring rose,
And halts drivers from a stop sign,
And colors the clay earth below.

The author's comments:
I chose to write a poem about red, and embodied the energy of red by describing it as popping and attention-grabbing.
