Black Is

 Black is sky so stars can shine 
Tiger's stripes and butterflies  Black is brushed on sparrow's wings  Black is many things.

 Black is writing on a page
 Berries sweet and clouds that rain
 Black is crying when you sing
 Black is anything.

We shouldn't fear the things we know
And black is everywhere we go.
The color black is not unknown 
'Cause black is blindness, even so...

 Black is earth so green can grow
 Wheels and roads that lead to home
 Black is like a child in spring  Black is everything  Black is everything...
