"I asked the Zebra...."

"I asked the Zebra,

are you black with white stripes?
Or white with black stripes?
And the zebra asked me,
Are you good with bad habits?
Or are you bad with good habits?
Are you noisy with quiet times?
Or are you quiet with noisy times?
Are you happy with some sad days?
Or are you sad with some happy days?
Are you neat with some sloppy ways?
Or are you sloppy with some neat ways?
And on and on and on and on and on and on he went.
I’ll never ask a zebra about stripes...again."

— Shel Silverstein

I really had some fun painting zebra stripes in a girl's bedroom these last two days.  I cannot take credit for the idea though......that goes to my cousin and her daughter.   


  1. GREAT job, Gretchen!!! And I love the zebra poem.

  2. I love the wall! Great job!! :-)

  3. Love the wall . The Zebra poem. so so true.

  4. The stripes look great, but didn't they drive you crazy?! Nice job, Gretchen!
