Feelings on Earth

On sparkle pink days,
I feel happy like a flamingo
flapping its wings.

On glittery blue days,
I feel glittery happy
like a lake in Lufkin.

On brown days,
I feel glad like a tree
waving its leaves.

On teal days,
I feel proud to be a peacock
attracting a mate.

On black days,
I feel sleepy and sometimes
hear my brother snore.

On violet pink days,
I feel excited
because it’s the end of the day.

All colors
make the earth beautiful
and that makes us feel humble.

– Estrella, age 9, Miclo, age 8, & Stephanie, age 6
