Red

Sailing in the sunset

Red is the color of hot hot hot.

Flickering flames in a fiery knot.

Sails in the sunset, roses and hearts,

Fire engines, fire bricks, strawberry tarts.

Blood and valentines, cardinals, barns,

Redwoods and poppies and crimsony yarns.

Spirited, shocking, the color of lust.

Foxes, cherries, rubies and rust.

Scarlet macaws, STOP on a sign,Lapas

Chili, persimmon, hollyhocks, wine.

Rage and happiness, burning desire.

Tomatoes and rosewood and embers of fire.

Candy apples and raspberry hisses,

Terra cotta and lipstick kisses.

Red is a door and a heady perfume.

Bittersweet, bloodroot, blushing in bloom.

Sweet sangria, a robins breast.Ruby Tuesday

Punch and passion, pizzaz and zest.

Of all earths colours, red is the best.
