White is the moon Ė a pearl
In a velvet sky of crystal stars;
Itís fresh-fallen snow,
A fluffy blanket hushing earth

Feathers of swan are white -
So, too, is rabbitís fur, Grandpaís hair,
A polecatís stripe,
Cotton puff clouds

White is the tail of a jet
Flying high, the mark of
Chalk on a blackboard
A paradox of truth and lie

The gown of a bride
As she floats down an aisle
Milk from a cow and
Marshmallows roasting over a fire

White is a sand dollar or a
Sugar sand beach,
Salt from a shaker or
An angel-food cake

Some gardenias, magnolias, roses,
Lilies and carnations are White,
As are polar bear, fox, chinchilla,
Ermine, poodles, and peacocks

White is purity, innocence,
A clean slate,
The robes of saints
Cleansed by the Lambís blood

Imagine a world without white -
No pages to bring letters to
Life, nor canvases to be brushed
With rainbow palettes

White, the absence of all color
Gives life to all color -
As light dispels the darkness.
God in His wisdom created White

This is a nice poem but I have to disagree with you. Actually black is the absence of color. White is the blending of all colors. I researched it when I was writing about black. This is an awesome poem, though.
