Colton and Shel Silverstein

 The Romance
by Shel Silversteincolton 110
Said the pelican to the elephant,
“I think we should marry, I do.colton 002
’Cause there’s no name that rhymes with me,
And no one else rhymes with you.”colton 024
Said the elephant to the pelican,
“There’s sense to what you’ve said,colton 059
For rhyming’s as good a reason as any
For any two to wed.”colton 064
And so the elephant wed the pelican,
And they dined upon lemons and limes,colton 070
And now they have a baby pelicant,
And everybody rhymes.

You really need to tell me all of the secrets to taking your photography over the top. The clarity, the color, the composition, the eye pop... it's just all pro now. Was it Andrea? A new camera? Workshops? What???? I really need to know, because I really want to be like you........

Shel is one of my favorite authors. I was going to say children's authors but I think he writes to the inner child in each of us.
Adorable pictures too Becky. A+++.
