The Color Of Yellow


The Daffodil
appears at will,
    decked-out in dapper yellow.

No Hesitation –
    becomes the dashing fellow.

In bearing some green,
only amber is seen,
    the color,
    a friendly logo.

We spoil the child,
which makes him wild.
    One cannot
    but stop,
    say “Hello.”

In bending the rules,
which makes us all fools.
    A frenzy in friendliness follows.

He comes and he goes,
as ever he wishes –
    Quick! is the prick
    of what finishes.

The color yellow
befits the young fellow;

but when all gone,
we forget what done,
    of dashing, dapper yellow.
