Colorful is life, full of grace,
The colors dance, in every place.
Red and yellow, warm and bright,
Blue and green, like a magical light.

Colorful is the sky, covered in clouds,
The sun shines, it has aroused.
Purple and orange, so wonderful,
The colors glow, that is undeniable.

In every rainbow, so fine and neat,
You can see all colors, complete.
Pink and turquoise, delicate and pure,
Colorful is life, that is for sure.
Colors are like a rainbow,
Shining, glowing, never plain.
Red like the flame that burns within,
Green like the nature that surrounds.

Blue like the sky, so endlessly vast,
Yellow like the sun, warming and bright.
Orange like fire, blazing within,
Violet like the night, seducing us right.
Some painters transform the sun into a yellow spot, others transform a yellow spot into the sun.
