I take an egg
All shiny white
And then I dip
It out of sight.

I leave it there
Within the cup
Then after a minute
I pick it up.

And oh!
It’s a lovely
Shade of green!
The prettiest Easter egg
I’ve ever seen.

We’ve never been much for traditional Easter egg colors in my family.  Sure we start off with the basic vinegar-based egg dyes like everyone else, but by the time we are finished dunking and wrapping and mixing and fussing, our Easter eggs never look quite like the classics.  I guess this is one way we like to express our individuality.
