Poems can give you

Poems can give you
by Sandra Bogart

Poems can give you
double vision.
They make you see
the colours you feel
when you're sad,
the sound of a red,
red sunset,
the smells of happiness,
the flavours of the seasons,
Double vision
not blurred
but crisp as last night's snow.

(from Til All the Stars Have Fallen: Canadian Poems for Children, edited by David Booth and illustrated by Kady MacDonald Denton)
