“Ol’ man Simon, planted a diamond. Grew hisself a garden
the likes of none. Sprouts all growin’ comin’ up glowin’
Fruit of jewels all shinin’ in the sun. Colors of the rainbow.
See the sun and the rain grow sapphires and rubies on ivory
vines, Grapes of jade, just ripenin’ in the shade, just ready
for the squeezin’ into green jade wine. Hangin’ in reach.
Ol’ man Simon, diggin’ in his diamonds, stops and rests and
dreams about one…real…peach.”
– Shel Silverstein, Where the Sidewalk Ends
