Garden of Fresh PicksPosted by Ali on March 25 at 04:58 pm
I was reading The Garden to Payton yesterday and for some reason I started thinking about Fresh Picks and how they are used.
The Garden by Shel Silverstein
(from Where the Sidewalk Ends pg 61)
Ol’ man Simon, planted a diamond,
Grew hisself a garden the likes of none.
Sprouts all growin’, comin’ up glowin’,
Fruit of jewels all shinin’ in the sun.
Colors of the rainbow,
See the sun and rain grow
Sapphires and rubies on ivory vines,
Grapes of jade, just
Ready for the squeezin’ into green jade wine.
Pure gold corn there,
Blowin’ in the warm air,
Ol’ crow nibblin’ on the amnythyst seeds.
In between the diamonds, ol’ man Simon
Crawls about pullin’ out platinum weeds.
Pink pearl berries,
All you can carry,
Put ‘em in a bushel and
Haul ‘em into town.
Up in the tree there’s
Opal nuts and gold pears–
Hurry quick, grab a stick
And shake some down.
Take a silver tater,
Fresh plump coral melons
Hangin’ in reach.
Ol’ man Simon,
Diggin’ in his diamonds,
Stops and rests and dreams about
This past week, a lot of the picks have palettes centered around a color theme with a splash of this or that. Great job, I can’t wait to see how people use them (hint: check out my “Getting Some INK” Blog post)
