"Orange is a tiger lily, a carrot,
a feather from a parrot, a flame,
the wildest color you can name.
in a sunset that shocks the sky.
Orange is brave, Orange is bold,
it's bittersweet and marigold.
the brightest stripe in a Roman sash.
Orange is an orange, also a mango
Orange is music of the tango.
the brightest crayon in the box.
And in the fall when the leaves are turning
Orange is the smell of a bonfire burning..."
