Not even kidding, this is the conversation we had at 6:30 this morning:
Mama, my favorite animals are tigers.
Because they are orange, and orange is my favorite color.
Other animals are orange, like monarch butterflies, some salamanders, some birds and fish…
Yes, but also because of Tigger.
And also because of that poem about the tiger burning bright in the forests of the night. Are there more verses?
What immortal hand or eye / Could frame thy fearful symmetry.
Yeah. Are there more more verses?
Yes, but I don’t know them.
Reviewing my records…we had that book out from the library two months ago!
