I found the world had changed.
The whole outdoors was yellow now—
With colors rearranged.
The flowers, one time rainbow-like,
Were now all tinted yellow.
I thought just buds and petals were,
But it was hard to tell though.
The leaves and limbs and trunks of trees
All had a yellow cast.
I couldn’t help but wonder how
This coloring could last.
The grass, although not withering,
Had turned a different shade,
With brilliant yellow highlighting
On every single blade.
There were no black or brown or white,
Just only yellow dogs.
The strangest sight of all to me
Was once-green yellow frogs.
The pigs, the cows, the barnyard cat—
Each wore a yellow hat.
The roosters’ combs were yellow, too.
Can you imagine that?
In lemon yellow woolly coats
Were little newborn lambs,
Attired like their Mama ewes,
As well as Papa rams.
The sky was yellow, odd indeed,
A gleaming gold horizon,
A scene to me as awesome as
I’d ever laid my eyes on.
The mountains had a yellow sheen;
The oceans had one, too.
As I looked at the world transformed,
Amazement grew and grew,
Until I saw the brilliant sun
With shining yellow rays
Had put a glow on all outside
In Great Creator’s praise.
