Aren't We Thankful to See Color

Author's Note: This poem is inspired by The Giver because they can't see color.  All they see is black and white.  I wanted to show a colorful poem to see how much we have and how fortunate we are to be able to see colors.

Red roses
Orange citrus fruit
Yellow rays of sunshine
Green fresh cut grass
Blue waves in the sea
Purple wispy skies
Pink fluffy cotton candy


  1. I like how you colored the color words! I think that we should be thankful to see color!

  2. After reading the book The Giver I really felt thankful that I could see in color and this a a great poem to describe it. I like you listed the main colors and what they look like.

  3. I really liked how you added the author's note to explain why you were writing this poem If you hadn't I would have thought you were just writing a poem about colors. Nice Job!!

  4. I like how you dedicated your piece to The Giver. I especially thought that you described "purple wispy skies" very well. The picture was also a very nice touch so that I could visually see what you were describing. Even if you hadn't had a picture,I would have been able to paint a picture in my mind because you were so descriptive. :)

  5. I am really glad that you put this piece up, I am so happy to see everyone's responses to The Giver. I also looked around a bit after the poem and realized what we see...and how boring our room is!

  6. This is a comment about your blog:
    I really like how your blog reflects you. I also like how you have your smart writing goals and your vocab. The organization in your blog is really good. You use sub pages which is really helpful. Your blog is really easy to read and find pieces and is also full of writing pieces.
