Orange: Shades of Me

Shades of Me Series: ORANGE by Jill Dorsey of Made with Moxie

What is Orange?
"Orange is a tiger lily, a carrot,
a feather from a parrot, a flame,
the wildest color you can name.

Shades of Me Series: ORANGE by Jill Dorsey of Made with Moxie

Orange is a happy day saying good-by
in a sunset that shocks the sky.
Orange is brave, Orange is bold,
it's bittersweet and marigold.

Shades of Me Series: ORANGE by Jill Dorsey of Made with Moxie

Orange is zip, Orange is dash,
the brightest stripe in a Roman sash.
Orange is an orange, also a mango
Orange is music of the tango.

Shades of Me Series: ORANGE by Jill Dorsey of Made with Moxie

Orange is the fur of the fiery fox,
the brightest crayon in the box.
And in the fall when the leaves are turning
Orange is the smell of a bonfire burning..."
