    What Is Pink?
    by Christina Rossetti (1830-1894)

    What is pink? A rose is pink
    By the fountain's brink.
    What is red? A poppy's red
    In its barley bed.
    What is blue? The sky is blue
    Where the clouds float through.
    What is white? A swan is white
    Sailing in the light.
    What is yellow? Pears are yellow,
    Rich and ripe and mellow.
    What is green? The grass is green,
    With small flowers between.
    What is violet? Clouds are violet
    In the summer twilight.
    What is orange? Why, an orange,
    Just an orange!
