This eccentric apparatus must have answered
A young child’s prayers.
It resembles imagination
All in a small cylinder.
A simple selection of color
Can change the entire mood.
Gray streaks create a dark, dreary cloud,
While yellow make a joyful sun.
As you hold it in your hand,
As strokes of color design anything you wish,
It is easy to see the creativity which like a security blanket
Is open, soothing, and always there.
