I Never Saw a Purple Cow
One of my Daddy's favorite poems to quote when he was in a silly mood was "I never saw a purple cow, I never thought I'd see one. But I tell you this right now: I'd rather see one than be one." I'm not really sure if there's some really deep philosophical meaning in that poem - but I do know that it made a little girl giggle every time she heard it.
Song of Solomon 6:9
but my dove, my perfect one, is unique, the only daughter of her mother, the favorite of the one who bore her. The maidens saw her and called her blessed; the queens and concubines praised her.
