Colored Countries

From Greenland's icey mountains to farr-off Borneo,
There are countries of all colors where I should
     love to go.
(I shouldn't mind geography if I could travel so

But I must sit upon my seat as proper as you

And stare at maps upon the wall all full of pale
    blue seas,
And pink and purple countries -- (Do they really
    look like these?)

O Dear!  I'd like to sail away
And find the purple ones some day
I'm sure that I should like to know
Geography that's studied so.

-- Annette Wynne
