Shades of Scarlet

By , State College, PA
Those shades of scarlet that you see
They are the leaves that fall
They have known the songbirds
Who have sat upon them
They have know the children
Who played tag below them
Scarlet maple and oak
What beauties have you seen!

Those shades of scarlet that you see
They are the soldiers who died
They have the determination
To love, to live, to protect
They have the willingness
For a cause they gave up their lives
Scarlet blood that has been spilled
How gloriously you fly to heaven!

Those shades of scarlet that you see
They are the stockings of Christmas
They hold wonders and beauties
For love, from one to another
They hold secrets, toys, and laughter
For the little ones to take
Scarlet and fluffy stockings
What wonderful wonders you hold!

Those shades of scarlet that you see
They are such beautiful colors
whether it's a scarlet letter
or maybe a valentine card
to us they mean very little
but to others they mean alot
Those shades of scarlet that you see
What wonders of love have you got?
