Violet – by Tammi Joyner


You radiant flower, don’t forget that you are Blue,

African, Black American, and Negro…true

Variant Hues, you all are blue

Baby Blue, Light Blue and Royal Blue too

Soft Lilac this is my salutation

Purple’s offspring: Such An Idle Vocation No, No, I did not forget you

On the whiter side but also Blue

Radiant Purple you are a compound…still Blue

Red you two combine to make this notation true

Roses are red and Violets are Blue

I remembered you all because you all are Blue!
