What does red and blue make?
Red and blue make purple they say
A violet hue akin to
Field of lavender, beams your way
Hands of red amid hands of blue
Each has a story of its own
Telling it silently to you
None is alike, not all made known
Everything you can imagine
Children all, each a precious stone
Together sweet and sour wine
Vulnerable, at play today
Squint a little, lavender lined

Note: The hands are actually prints of adults, workers at St. Luke's Episcopal Hospital in the Woodlands, Texas. Click on the picture and you can see their individual signing. In my poem they would be hands of children, each representing a child, as that is what I can "see".
