Yellow is the color of the sun, the feeling of fun, 
the yolk of an egg, a duck's bill, 
a canary bird and a daffodil. 
Yellow's sweet corn, ripe oats, 
hummingbirds' little throats
Summer squash and Chinese silk
the cream on top of Jersey milk
dandelions and daisy hearts, 
custard pies and lemon tarts.
Yellow blinks on summer nights 
in the off and on of firefly lights.
Yellow's a topaz, a candle flame.  
Felicity's a yellow name.
Yellow's mimosa, and I guess,
yellow is the color of happiness.
