Yellow


Yellow is the lollipop I ate,
Followed by a yellow cake.
I straw-sipped yellow lemonade.


Yellow was the rose,
I smelled,
Yellow were the buttercups,
My mind in them dwelt.

Yellow was the sun above,
On a sunshiny yellow day.
Yellow was all I could ask for,
Above any kind of pay.


Yellow was the one sun ray,
I captured in my hand today.
Yellow was that one sun ray,
I kept in my hand today.

poet Emily Jane Brontë

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
