Red Sings from Treetops

Green is new in spring. Shy.
Green peeks from buds, trembles in the breeze.
Green floats through rain-dark trees, and glows, mossy-soft, at my feet.
Green drips from tips of leaves onto Pup's nose.
In spring, even the rain tastes Green.

Yes, it is still technically winter, but all the sun from last week has summoned the daffodils into bloom, making this week's rain more bearable.

Red Sings from Treetops: A Year in Colors by Joyce Sidman and illustrated by Pamela Zagarenski was a Caldecott Honor book for this year and it is truly magical. Bug's mind has been totally opened in thinking of colors this way...
