Once there was a tall mushroom named Sheldon, who lived in a big field, full of beautiful wild flowers. Sheldon was very sad because there weren’t many mushrooms around and his only company was a set of flowers called the Flower Girls.
With their bright colors of red, yellow, pink and purple, they were very, very pretty and smelled quite sweet. They often teased Sheldon about being so plain and brown, and not having a pleasant smell.
the noonday, when the sun was
smiling so brightly over the field, the Flower Girls would sing their favorite song, as the little bugs gathered around.
With our colors for all to see.
evening came, the little bugs hurried past Sheldon, returning home, without
even saying good-bye. Ignoring Sheldon a final time for the day, the Flower
Girls closed their petals for the night. Sheldon felt so terribly alone and
sad, he started to cry.
Knowing that everyone was asleep, he sang a little song to himself.
"I'm a tall mushroom so plain and brown;
With bugs and flowers all around.
Stuck in a field all day long;
Singing my sad mushroom song."
Sheldon then closed his teary eyes for the night.
