Using Colors in Poetry

Maybe later, our class teacher to stimulate his imagination, asked him what color they were, smelled or tasted. Poets also use their colors to create similar thoughts in ways. Most of the time, colors can be used as symbols for intangible or conceptual purposes.

green = jealousy, rebirth, money

brown = earthly properties
