Easter eggs are so pretty and bright.
I’m going to color a dozen tonight.
The dye is poured and all in a row.
It looks like a liquid rainbow.
Eggs break easy. I have to take care.
Once they are cracked there is no repair.
Time to remove them from their dye soak.
Whoops! Dropped the red. Eww, I see its yolk.
No more mistakes. Let’s take out the blue.
Whoops! There it went. It crashed on my shoe.
Finally success! I have a nice green one.
It gets easier as each one is done.
The rest survive to dry on the rack.
So I have ten to display and two for a snack.
