My Rainbow Garden

by Lily McKay aged 9

I love my rainbow garden
It explodes constantly with a kaleidoscope of colour

Red is for the plump, juicy tomatoes
Preparing themselves for a feast

Orange is for the gigantic sunflowers
That warm my heart

Yellow is for the sunshine
That beams over each and every petal

Green is for all the leaves
That feed these beautiful gems

Blue is for the carpet of bluebells
That shimmer like the ocean

Indigo is for the strong primrose
That returns to see me, in the harshest of winters.

Violet is for the clematis that steadily climbs, reaching for the stars

But in all this colourful delight,
My heart lies with the Lily,
which stands majestically,
in its glorious, pure and beautiful white
