"My skin is kind of sort of brownish
Pinkish yellowish white.
My eyes are greyish blueish green,
But I'm told they look orange in the night.
My hair is reddish blondish brown,
But it's silver when it's wet.
And all the colors I am inside
Have not been invented yet."

-- Shel Silverstein

The girls (& I ) are so obsessed with Shel. We read a few poems from "a light in the attic" just about every night :) Always fun!!

Oh my goodness, Shel was the reading material in our home for many many years, passed down from child to child. Love this post!
