Creative fun in
the palm of your hand.

This is written in celebration of Dr. Seuss' (Theodore Seuss Giesel's) 115th birthday.
Dr. Seuss, bless your birth!
I have something to say,
"You're a man of great worth,
that still lasts to this day!"

We're still learning to read
generations and all.
Creativity freed
for the old and the small.

There's the cat in his hat,
who just frolics with kids,
but now parents have sat,
just like new ones he bids.

Then, there's Sam of the plate
who would force you to eat.
Maybe green would be great
for your eggs and ham treat.

What would Christmas yet be
without Whoville's great loss?
Someone's Grinching a tree,
all the presents to toss.

When to Grinchy's dismay
ev'ry child in such joy
sees his crying display,
and new heart to employ

Wisdom learned from your pen,
that has authored great thoughts
brings the Mean One to mend,
while the fam'lies are taught.

Dr. Seuss, bless your birth!
You've had something to say
through your days here on Earth
with your wit and your play!

O, the places we've gone
through your joy and your mirth.
Seems the learning is done
by your hope, a new birth.

When the Fox in his socks
makes the living to dance,
then we'll scale highest rocks
for your visage to glance.
