35 Days: 17 April-Poem #5- Yellow

yellow as the sunflower that apes the yellow sun

yellow as the egg-yolk that splits and starts to run

yellow as the school bus that takes the children home

yellow as the amber of my mother's favourite comb

yellow as canaries singing in the trees

yellow as the corn and yellow as the cheese

yellow as a swallowtail upon a summer flower

yellow as a lemon drop its taste so sharp and sour

yellow as the buttercups uncounted in the fields

and yellow as the gold that the rainbow has concealed

yellow as the lemon with its bitterness within

yellow as the jaundice that creeps across his skin
