I once was green with envy
When I heard my friend’s good news.
I’ve been so red with anger,
And I’ve even had the blues!
I’ve written lots of purple prose,
And I’ve been tickled pink.
My rainbow rhymes and metaphors
Are good as gold, I think.
When scared, I’m white as any sheet,
And then I feel so yellow!
But never mind—you’ll never find
A colorfuller fellow!
