Colors of My World: Color poems at Darwin

At Darwin, we thought about colors and how the colors of the things around us can be woven into poems.

Here are the poets from our classroom!

Delilah & Citlalli

Yo soy azul and tu eres azul
Azul soy yo and Azul eres tu
Azul a migusta y el mi gusta
Azul es crallon y es marcador
Azul soy yo y no me uses!

I am blue and you are blue
Blue is me and blue is you
Blue likes me and Blue likes you
Blue is a crayon and blue is marker
Blue is you and don’t use me!


Another world could be red
A bird could be red
A dot could be red
A flower could be red
A box could be red
My dog man could be red


La agua es azul y ceilo es azul
Alan es azul
El Rubix cube es verde es como
el arboles es verde

The water is blue and the sky is blue
Alan is blue
The rubix cube is green and it’s like
the trees are greens .

Ms. Garcia, 2nd grade, English


Blue is brave
Red is royal
Indigo is in style
Turquoise is treasure
Iridescent is incredible
Silver is shiny
Humble is heroic

Nathaniel D
I see orange orange
I see orange Box
I see orange Ball
I see orange book
I see orange paper
Orange make me like a sun
and it make me like a moon

Davonte & BJ

yellow sun
yellow duck
yellow cheese
yellow play dough
yellow bee
yellow paper
yellow world


Blue is like the sky
Blue is like water
Blue is like the sea in the coral
Blue is in the teacher
Blue is in a rainbow
Blue is in a blueberries
Blue is in a crayon
Blue is in a marker
Blue is in a shadow
Blue makes me happy
