What Is Red?
Mischa Park-Doob
Sept. 15, 1988

Red is a Ruby shining in the night.
Red is the rage when having a fignt.
Red is the stars, a rose, or Mars
and red plum jelly being kept in jars.
Red can be beautiful and red can be blinding
and red is the sound of the ol' sawmill grinding.
Red is a bird with a fancy feather.
Red is new shoes made out of leather.
Red is the fall with its swell smelling leaves
and red is flowers being pollinated by the bees.
Red is flashy and red is peace
but I certainly haven't ever seen red geese.
Red is the sunset sparkling with shine
and red is a sad goodby but afterwards you'll be fine.
