Crayon Poem

With these crayons
I could draw…

A crazy
purple dinosaur.

An orange mouse
with yellow cheese.

A big black dog
with big brown fleas.

A tall blue house
with a small green door
and four white windows.

Something more?

Silver raindrops.
Golden sun.

Then a . . . R A I N B O W

sounds like fun!
