White

By Sophie Torres, age 12
White Sophie goes to Briarcliff Middle School, but sometimes lives on Mars. She wants candy and steals lollipops.

“White is a color that shines like the moon.
White is a color that breaks through the gloom.”

 

  White is a color that shines like the moon.

White is a color that breaks through the gloom.

White is so pale that it bleaches the dark.

White is the fog and the mist bright and stark.

White is the cotton balls, clouds, and the snow.

White is sharp diamonds and fangs just for show.

White is the truth and white is a lie,

white is the drab and the blank hazy sky.

White is the rough waters only just forming,

but white is the pure note that brings the dove’s mourning.

White could be thicker, and white could be fuller,

but let’s face it, white’s just the absence of color.
