Scarlet and Crimson and Ravishing Rose

Breath-taking surge of rich and bright

Red on my windowsill catches the light

Wondrous show of Nature’s art

Red on my patio catches my heart

Dapper fellow knows it’s true

A dash of red can work for you

Red can cheer the chilliest scene

With red on a tree, who needs green?

Festive red my sons did wear

What handsome lads! What savoir-faire!

Lads grew up, and who could have known?

One has a red-wearing child of his own

A rousing color, glowing so true

One grandbaby, and now there are two

As for cars, I was happy with gray

But then I saw Ruby, and hey hey hey!

Scarlet and crimson and ravishing rose

And one more thought before I close:

When days are long and hope has fled

Try a sparkle of sprightly red!
