What is Red?
by Cheri Marks
Red is a crisp apple on a fall day.
Red is a sunset far off in the bay.
Red is a sunburn on the tip of your nose.
Red is a brilliant, beautiful rose.
Red is a valentine to the one you love.
Red is anger with a push and a shove.
Red is alarming, a warning, a light.
Red is a hot fire burning bright.
Red gets attention, there is no doubt.
Red is a color I can't live without.
