What is there to say
about brown?
The darkest shade of yellow,

It's usually considered a somber color,
But actually,
it's just a shade of yellow,

You often see it when you look down,
You think it is brown,
But just a shade of yellow.

It seems to be a grown-up color,
But if we stay young, we'll choose,
Just a shade of yellow.

I don't think brown tastes so good,
I would rather eat,
just a shade of yellow.

My favorite color used to be brown,
But now,
just a shade of yellow.

There's an aging here, that yellow to brown, or a sense of decay. I think I would rather eat a shade of yellow, too. Good poem.

I love all colors, especially complements (cause they're so nice. lol) Enjoyed the pic of different browns too). Thanks for posting for One Shot Poetry today!

Both a shade of yellow and brown are fine by me, though a shade of yellow has more romance. Interesting TT :)

Ode to brown. And a good one.

I might be hungry but brown and chocolate are a combination...I think of dark rich chocolate and then the milk chocolate...yellow would be lemony...no, give me chocolate...brown!
Good job on choosing yellow!

Brown...my favorite color. Never thought of it as a shade of yellow. I've always read that yellow is a color that evokes emotion. So if that is so...this explains a lot!

Thanks for following Maggie's...I'm happy to find you. I too am into making art. You have some beautiful work on your sidebar.

I enjoyed reading this, it's so well done. Brown has always been one of my favourite colours, I never thought of it as a shade of yellow.
