Happy Birthday, Dr. Seuss!

Friday March 2, 2012

A Birthday Poem for Dr. Seuss (with my apologies)

A tribute to Seuss, Ted Geisel the great!

Today is your birthday- one hundred and 8!

And though you’re long gone, you’re gruvvulous groovy,

with product endorsements and “Lorax: The Movie”.

But I love your books, of which I am smitten-

carefully crafted and beautifully written.

I read them quite often. Oh Horton! What fun!!

I laugh like I’m seven (though I’m 51).

So here’s to the Dr.- a hero of mine.

We’ll toast you next year at a hundred and 9!
