“The feathers popped out! With a zang! With a zing!
They blossomed like flowers that bloom in the spring.
All fit for a queen! What a sight to behold!
They sparkled like diamonds and gumdrops and gold!
Like silk! Like spaghetti! Like satin! Like lace!
They burst out like rockets all over the place!
They waved in the air and they swished in the breeze!
And some were as long as the branches of trees!
And still they kept growing! They popped and they popped
Until, ‘long about sundown when, finally, they stopped.
By Dr. Seuss
