The Colorful Vowels

Red A, Blue E, Green I,

Maroon O, White U

A, a hot summer day in

The dazzling desert, coyotes seeing

Red in their eyes, kangaroo boxing in a hot stage arena.

E, an Easter day with an egg

In the green magical grass,

With leprechauns sliding down

A colorful rhythm.

I, the eyes of an eagle

Catching its prey, feeding

The soaring of her heart, an iguana

In her interesting life.

O, an octopus under the caves

Of a shark, experiencing the underwater life

As a shark hunts to eat.

U, an amazing angel

Taking away u and all of the other

Amazing vowels over a beautiful sunset.

By Frank, 4th Grade
