Periwinkle is a color that makes me feel alive
The soft hues calm my spirit, yet my senses seem to jive
It's not exactly purple yet neither is it blue
It is clean and quite refreshing, in its subtle, gentle hew
It makes me think of springtime on this chilly Autumn day
Periwinkle clematis climb and cling, to everything that's in its way
It's kind of purple-"ish" blue, with just a hint of gray,
With a touch of lilac blended in to make it look that way
I think that God just mixed it up, especially for me
Cuz periwinkle makes me smile and fills my heart with glee!
It's such a happy color and it really makes my day
When I see periwinkle I can hardly look away
"Violets are blue" they always say, but I tend to disagree
When I see violets I always say "they look periwinkle to me!"
I look into a sunset and there amongst the orange and gold
I see some periwinkle starting to unfold
Am I a little silly? Or is it really true?
Tell me, how does the color periwinkle have effect on you?
I saw it in the Smokey Mountains as I took pictures in the haze
I also saw it in Santa Fe when on plateaus I gazed
I also see it here in Kansas when the sun begins to rise
As the darkness flees and light begins to dawn upon the skies
When I get to see my mansion that the Lord prepares for me
I sure hope that periwinkle will be there for me to see
Periwinkle is just kind of a silly word to say
Try to add some periwinkle to your life today!
He who is of a merry heart has a continual feast.
