A description of the color Silver.

What is Silver? 

Silver is different 

The color of dares 

It's money and laughter 

The taste when you're scared. 

It's the flashing track 

Of a rocket's trail 

It's speed and quickness 

And a comet's tail. 

It's the very first color 

to first greet the light 

And the last to leave it 

When the day says good night 

It's the color you feel 

When you feel most free, 

It's the woods in an ice storm 

And the moon on the sea. 

It's the stuff that the stuff 

Of quality is made 

An ancient coin 

The shine of a blade. 

The smell of silver 

Is the smell of cold 

And most people say 

It's the cousin of gold. 

It's the most alive of the colors 

It never stands still 

Jumping and dancing 

It has its own will. 

When green bows to autumn 

When fall colors fade 

Silver's alive 

It has its own shades 

It won't leave with the seasons 

And when white covers the land 

It's the sun on the thumbprint 

Of Jack Frost's hand.
