From: My Many Colored Days by Dr Seuss
Some days are yellow.
Some are blue.
On different days I’m different too.
You’d be surprised how many ways
I change on Different Colored Days.
On Bright Red Days how good it feels
to be a horse and kick my heels!
On other days I’m other things.
On Bright Blue Days I flap my wings.
Some days, of course, feel sort of Brown.
Then I feel slow and low, low down.
Then comes a Yellow Day and Wheeee
I am a busy, buzzy bee.
Gray Day….Everything is gray. I watch.
But nothing moves today.
Then all of a sudden I’m a circus seal!
On my Orange Days that’s how I feel.
Green Days. Deep deep in the sea.
Cool and quiet fish. That’s me.
On Purple Days I’m sad. I groan.
I drag my tail. I walk alone.
But when my days are Happy Pink
it’s great to jump and just not think.
Then come my Black Days. MAD. And loud.
I howl. I growl at every cloud.
Then comes a Mixed-Up Day. And WHAM!
I don’t know who or what I am!
But it all turns out all right, you see.
And I go back to being … me.
Today was not just one color day. It was a multicolor day and not at all a ‘Mixed Up Day’.
Joy joy joy.
