Good Gifts Come In Purple This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

Good gifts come in purple.

The bow is slightly off-center.

I like them that way.



A lot of people tell me

that good gifts come

in a perfect little box,

with a perfect little bow;

with blue eyes,

straight teeth,

and a cute little button nose.

But I like them in purple.



Purple is bright

and vibrant,

and vivid.



It is strong

and it has real personality.



You notice presents

wrapped in purple.

They stand out;

and you remember long after they've been opened.

They leave an impression;

bring you such Joy.



"What's in the purple one, Tammy?

Open the purple one!"
