Mrs. Hay

I remember Mrs. Hay
had gray hair
and I was in fourth grade
and she told me that
purple does not go
with yellow for spring flowers
and she gave me a C.

I have loved pansies ever since.

Print and color your own. Go ahead. You should. Any color you like.


  1. So entirely awesome. Thank you my dear.

  2. Good for you! Teachers don't know everything! (BTW I'm a high school English teacher!)

    And I love pansy faces no matter what color they are!

    Great little poem!

  3. brilliant!! what a great poem!

    thankfully, we weren't marked on our colour co-ordination when i was little, so i was free to draw my flowers bright blue and red :D


Feel free to critique the poetry. I employ a sophisticated thick hide technology.
