Can I put up one more?

It was exciting reading the comments my dear blogger friends have sent on the Rossetti's I planted a hand. Not bad at all. As Muslims, it is neither new nor difficult.

On a lighter note, here's What is pink?, by Rossetti too. For those with children, young or a little older, it allows for a lot of potential. They can easily substitute the colours or objects with their own to make the poem their version. Maybe you guys wanna try this??

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 thro'.

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!

****
My version (pay attention!!!):

What is pink?
my eyeshadow's pink
To be seen when I wink. (no, I don't actually wear eyeshadows!)

What is red?
my eyes are red
When I'm not yet in bed.

What is blue?
the room is blue
when there's smell of poo.

What is white?
Ju-ons wear white
Very frightening at night.

What is yellow?
Egg yolks are yellow
Smudged on the poor fellow.

What is green?
Hulk is green
Standing next to Mr Bean.

What is orange?
Zahid's shirt is orange
And he needs a range!

What is violet?
Why, a violet,
Just a violet!

WARNING: I'm no poet. This is just for fun. And no, this is not turning into a poem blog.

What is red?
I’m going to paint the town chilli red
Only when I succeed all the way
And look back at today

What is blue?
The binded thesis is gonna be royal blue
So that it really match my everyday blues
If only it’s not so true

What is green?
I’m fluorescence green with envy
Those who already submitted
And went their merry way

What is orange?
My tumbler is orange
Where I drink from everyday
For sustenance & not getting sleepy
