Todays Quote on Wild Strawberries

“Are wild strawberries really wild? Will they scratch an adult, will they snap at a child? Should you pet them, or let them run free where they roam? Could they ever relax in a steam-heated home? Can they be trained to not growl at the guests? Will a litterbox work or would they make a mess? Can we make them a Cowberry, herding the cows, or maybe a Muleberry pulling the plows, or maybe a Huntberry chasing the grouse, or maybe a Watchberry guarding the house, and though they may curl up at your feet oh so sweetly can you ever feel that you trust them completely? Or should we make a pet out of something less scary, like the Domestic Prune or the Imported Cherry, Anyhow, you’ve been warned and I will not be blamed if your Wild Strawberries cannot be tamed.”
Shel Silverstein (Where the Sidewalk Ends)

  1. Ah, this makes me want to pull out my old Shel Silverstein book. This was a wonderful read :)

  2. I have wild strawberries all over my yard but they are tiny little things. I can practically smell the food when I come over here. Everything looks so wonderful and inviting. Have a great week.
