Colour

The world is full of colour!
“Tis Autumn once again,
And leaves of gold and crimson
Are lying in the lane.

There are brown and yellow acorns,
Berries and scarlet haws,
Amber grose and heather
Purple across the moors!

Green apples in the orchard,
Flushed by a glowing sun;
Mellow pears and brambles,
Where coloured pheasants run!

Yellow, blue and orange,
Russet, rose and red-
A gaily-coloured pagent-
An Autumn flower bed.

Beauty of light and shadow,
Glory of wheat and rye,
Colour of shining water
Under a sunset sky!
