Painting the Rainbow

Color me pink like a rose in the garden.
Color me red like the bow in my friend’s hair.
Color me orange like a pumpkin on Halloween and Fanta soda.
Color me yellow like bananas at my house.
Color me green like when I paint trees growing.
Color me blue like the sky.
Color me purple like my sister’s favorite color.
Color me like all the colors in my rainbow!
