In the worst inn's worst room, with mat half-hung, The floors of plaister, and the walls of dung, On once a flock-bed, but repaired with straw, With tape-tied curtains, never meant to draw, The George and Garter dangling from that bed Where tawdry yellow strove with dirty red, Great Villiers lies.Alexander Pope
Child of mortality, whence comest thou? Why is thy countenance sad, and why are thine eyes red with weeping?anna letitia barbauld
Every body is a book of blood; Wherever we're opened, we're red.clive barker
Blue has no dimensions, it is beyond dimensions, whereas the other colours are not. They are pre-psychological expanses, red, for example, presupposing a site radiating heat. All colours arouse specific associative ideas, psychologically material or tangible, while blue suggests at most the sea and sky, and they, after all, are in actual, visible nature what is most abstract.yves klein
This is a Tale about a tail — a tail that belonged to a little red squirrel, and his name was Nutkin.beatrix potter

Life is full of a thousand red herrings, and it takes the history of a civilisation to work out which are the red herrings and which aren't.Peter Greenaway
Sparkling and bright, in liquid light does the wine our goblets gleam in. With hue as red as the rosy bed which a bee would choose to dream in.Charles Fenno Hoffman

The red rose whispers of passion, And the white rose breathes of love; O, the red rose is a falcon, And the white rose is a dove.
Surgery is the red flower that blooms among the leaves and thorns that are the rest of medicine.Richard seltzer
O ye dead Poets, who are living still Immortal in your verse, though life be fled, And ye, O living Poets, who are dead Though ye are living, if neglect can kill, Tell me if in the darkest hours of ill, With drops of anguish falling fast and red From the sharp crown of thorns upon your head, Ye were not glad your errand to fulfill?Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
Who hath woe? who hath sorrow? who hath contentions? who hath babbling? who hath wounds without cause? who hath redness of eyes? They that tarry long at the wine; they that go to seek mixed wine. Look not thou upon the wine when it is red, when it giveth its color in the cup, when it moveth itself aright: at the last it biteth like a serpent, and stingeth like an adder.
Roses red and violets blew, And all the sweetest flowres that in the forrest grew.Edmund Spenser
There has fallen a splendid tear From the passion-flower at the gate. She is coming, my dove, my dear; She is coming, my life, my fate; The red rose cries, "She is near, she is near;" And the white rose weeps, "She is late;" The larkspur listens, "I hear, I hear;" And the lily whispers, "I wait."Alfred Tennyson
In the great green room, there was a telephone And a red balloon And a picture of the cow jumping over the moon.Margaret Wise Brown
