White is a marshmallow,
All soft and chewy.
White is a cloud, All wispy and bright.
White is the color of a blinding snowfall at night, when
you trip over your snowman who gives you a fright.
I see visions of ghosts at Halloween, and
skeletons, too, with a brilliantly blinding scheme.
You cannot go wrong with White
For it matches, matches everything in sight!
White is the color of cotton sheets and a new softball,
the plate in front of the catcher’s mound, for all.
A new baby’s Christening blanket, velvety sweet,
White makes me think of all those scallops
I love to eat!
White carnations in the happy groom’s tuxedo,
is something to celebrate instead of the torpedo.
White is the smell of peppermints in a box,
Freshening all who partake after lox.
Easter Lilies adorning the alter anew,
white is a witness for all good and true.
Some might not consider it a color at all,
but white is what works when no others come to call.
Nurses, Lilies, Infants, a Fresh snowfall and more,
White is a color that should never ever bore.
So welcome white to your world like no other,
It won’t fail you, but be true just like your own
