Today I thank you for the read.
It is a special day indeed.
You probably know him, for what it’s worth,
It’s the day of Dr. Seuss’s birth.
He brought us the annoying guy named Sam
Who liked to eat green eggs and ham.
He often wrote of this and that
And is best know for the Cat in the Hat.
From Hop on Pop to Horton Hears a Who
To One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue ….
If you need holiday spirit in a pinch?
All you need is to read about the Grinch.
He showed us that Mr. Brown could “Moo”
And all the antics of Things 1 and 2.
Readers everywhere loved him so
for telling us of the places we’ll go.
We saw it all on Mulberry Street
and then we wished we had duck feet.
From wockets in pockets to A, B, C
to a Fox in Socks and 1, 2, 3!
His books I read daily when I was a lad
I read them to my kids when I became dad.
Seuss brought us fun stories and plenty of rhyme
Kids will keep reading them for a long long time
