Blue by Síofra Corcoran 4th Class CETNS
Bubblegum, Slushy and some Powerade,
Blueberry muffins, relaxing with the blue sky,
Smurfs are cuddly like teddy bears.
It’s the soft sweet eyes of many people,
The blueprint for commitment.
Green by Tiernan Leahy 4th Class CETNS
Grass is growing in the silent wood,
Moss is creeping over the roots of an ancient tree,
Pondweed is covering the top of a watery lake
Like a carpet.
Leaves, over the tops of dark trees
Hiding whatever lives below.
Purple by Ayana O’Brien 4th Class CETNS
Running fast through the fresh Summer
day alive and smiling,
Smelling the sweet lavender
as my head hits the soft pillow
Yellow by Laura Adamajtys 4th Class CETNS
Yellow is the colour of fresh, sour lemons
Yellow is the colour of the shining, blinding sun
Yellow whenever you look at it, will make you HAPPY!!
Black by Michael Moroney 4th Class CETNS
Black is my hair, black is everywhere.
Black is my shadow following me.
Black is darkness.
Black is eye liner, black is my rabbit.
Blue by Emma Lambert 4th Class CETNS
Blue is the frost on a cold winter night,
Blue is the clouds way up in the sky.
Blue is a cold you catch but don’t throw,
Blue is the ocean you see out your window,
Blue is what I feel when I am depressed,
Blue is a berry when it’s at its best.
Pink by Holly Taylor 4th Class CETNS
Pink is pretty, nice and colourful.
Pink is a cool, highlighted, neon nail varnish.
Pink is a pen so it goes on paper .
Pink is my favourite lipstick and it is very bright.
Pink is a bow on my pink dungarees.
Pink is a yummy lollipop.
Blue by Jessica Grealish 4th Class CETNS
Blue is the lovely sight of a beach .
Blue is the colour of jeans and shorts.
Blue is the colour of water and the slide.
Blue is the colour of the sky at night with tiny sparkling stars.
Blue is the colour of ice-cream on a hot steaming morning.
Blue is the colour on the page that sticks it all together.
Yellow by Michaela Chohan 3rd Class CETNS
Yellow is the colour of Corina’s bow,
Yellow is the colour of Thalia’s hair,
Yellow is the colour of The Simpson’s,
Yellow is the colour of the pencil,
Yellow is the colour of my house,
Yellow is the colour of the warning sign ,
Yellow is the colour of my homework diary,
Yellow is the colour of the harp,
Yellow is the colour of the bus ,
Yellow are my shoes,
Yellow is the colour of my bottle.
White by Eanna Alfonso 4th Class CETNS
Winters frost and snow
Is driven away by a soft summer glow.
A girl sitting by the stream,
Bathing in a light sunbeam.
Her pure cotton dress,
Blows slightly in the breeze.
And all around there were bees,
Rabbits, swans and butterflies.
It was one moment when nobody cries.
In the sky a cloud drifts by,
A bird flew high in the sky.
The girl watched it eating ice-cream,
And then the world did gleam.
Red by Deimantas Gaidys 3rd Class CETNS
Liverpool , home shirts , full of rules,
Strawberry, raspberry, redcurrant,
Make red blood, as bright as a rose,
Red stone eyes and M hats are stuff
we would normally see in video games.

Some nail polishes are yellow,
Some flowers are yellow,
Yellow is the colour yellow ,
My pencil is yellow,
Some of my school books are yellow,

Bananas are sweet and yellow.
