something beautiful and strange

'neath my family tree I found something green and blue and brown hatching out beneath my touch that I love so very much can you take it home tonight? feed it soup and hold it tight? I can't have it ,Heaven knows, it wants to wear my sister's clothes and dance around in town all day and make confections out of clay put it in a sachel bag make it march and wave a flag until it learns it must conform it's just too different from the norm and when you make it tow the line, I'll take it home and make it mine.
