Popsicles, popsicles, oh, what a treat!
How wonderful to eat something so sweet!
The ice in the freezer cools my tongue.
I’ve eaten popsicles since I was young.
On days I am happy, I eat red ice on a stick.
Red popsicles make your lips look slick.
The days I am tired, I try the orange kind.
Orange gives you energy and frees your mind.
On mornings it rains, I eat the color yellow.
I need bright sunshine when the sky is mellow.
On afternoons outside, I enjoy ice that’s green.
Green is delicious and tastes nothing like a bean.
On nights I feel sad, I eat two color blue.
One isn’t enough of the melancholy hue.
When I feel brave enough to be crazy,
I eat indigo popsicles like a seaside daisy.
When I can’t sleep, I try the violet flavor.
It puts me to bed with a dream I can savor.
And when I’m hungry, I have one of each.
A rainbow of popsicles is a like a day at the beach.
