CHROMA- BY DEREK JARMAN
A Book Of Colour-June '93
Brilliant, gorgeous, painted, gay,
Vivid, Flaunting, tearaway,
Glowing, Flaring, Lurid, Loud,
Screaming, Shrieking, Marching, Proud,
Mellow, matching, deep and dull,
Constant, colourful, chromatic,
Party-coloured and prismatic,
Kaleidoscopic, variegated,
Tattooed, dyed, illuminated,
Daub and scumble, dip and dye,
High-keyed colour, colour lie

CHRISTINA GEORGINA ROSSETTI,
'What Is Pink?' From Sing-Song
What is pink? A rose is pink
By the fountains brink.
What is red? A poppy's red
In its barley bed.
What is blue?The sky is blue
where the clouds float through.
What is white? A swan is white
sailing in the light.
What is yellow? Pears are yellow
Rich and ripe and mellow.
What is green? the grass is green,
with small flowers between.
What is violet? clouds are violet
in the summer twilight.
What is orange? Why, an orange,
Just an orange!
