Orange and Black

quote by Holly Mathers-Shuemaker
As colors fade and slip away from the landscape, trees stand bare.
We rely on words to keep the memory alive.  

The Colors live
Between back and white
In a land that we
Know best by sight.
But knowing best 
Isn't everything,
For colors dance
And colors sing,
And colors laugh
And colors cry-
Turn off the light
And colors die,
And they make you feel;
Every feeling there is
From the grumpiest grump
to the fizziest fizz.
And you and you and I
Know well
Each has a taste
And each has a smell
And each has a wonderful 
Story to tell...
