a rainbow in words- 12th

Best Dressed

So, here we stand dressed in our Sunday best
But your frown seems to suggest your perplexed
Colours make us happy
Please explain why you are so vexed
We like to look on the bright side of life
Try to forget all our trouble and strife
Abandon the glum text
Set aside your gloom, become one of the best dressed
