Five peas from a pod

There were five peas in one pod; the peas were green and the pod was green, and so they believed that the whole world was green-and that was absolutely right! The pod grew and the peas grew; they adjusted themselves to their surroundings, sitting straight in a row. The sun shone outside and warmed the pod; the rain made it clear and clean. It was nice and cozy inside, bright in the daytime and dark at night, just as it should be; and the peas became larger, and more and more thoughtful, as they sat there, for surely there was something they must do. Shall I always remain sitting here? said one. If only I don't become hard from sitting so long. It seems to me there must be something outside; I have a feeling about it. And weeks went by; the peas became yellow, and the pod became yellow. The whole world's becoming yellow, they said, and that they had a right to say. Then they felt a jerk at the pod.
