How Sleep-Sheep got new colors
By Asbjorn Lonvig
Sleep-Sheep loves Rome.
You know, Rome in Italy.
One day he wanted to see the Coliseum, the Roman Forum, the Trevi Fountain, the Spanish Stairs, and the National Museum of Rome.
After having seen the Coliseum, of course he had a nap.
After having seen the Trevi Fountain, of course, he had a nap.
After having seen the Spanish Stairs, of course, he had a nap.
Then he went to the National Museum of Rome - in Italian it has the very long name Museo Nazionale Romano Palazzo Massimo Alle Terme.
It had Roman coins, busts of Roman Emperors, and lots of large sculptures of Roman Gods and Goddesses.
After having seen Roman coins, Sleep-Sheep had a nap of course.
After having seen busts of Roman Emperors, of course, Sleep-Sheep had a nap.
After having seen large sculptures of Roman Gods and Goddesses, of course, Sleep-Sheep had a nap.
Last of all, Sleep-Sheep saw the beautiful mosaics from Roman houses.
Sleep-Sheep was wide awake.
He stared at the mosaic from Casale di San Basilio at Via Nomentana in Rome, which was 2000 years old.
Sleep-Sheep just loved it.
For a long time he just looked at the gorgeous colours.
Of course he fell asleep.
He was fast asleep.
And he dreamt.
A wonderful dream it was.
He dreamt he had become ecological.
He dreamt he was the same colours as the mosaic from Casale di San Basilio.
He dreamt he had become spring-turquoise.
He dreamt he had become spring-beige.
He dreamt he had become spring-yellow.
He dreamt he had become spring-brown.
A wonderful dream.
If you go to the National Museum of Rome you can see Sleep-Sheep still standing there dreaming his wonderful dream.
