Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss!
A Poem in honor of Dr. Seuss by Max Veenema
One fish, two fish, here’s to you fish
Every once in awhile comes along a great writer, they are witty, and sharp. Their words couldn’t be brighter.
One of those people, has shaped many a mind.His books are enchanting, and funny, and kind.
Dr. Seuss is his name and today is his day, so follow his words – Go outside! Play! Discovery, innovation, and adventure he implored. Go explore the world and you’ll never get bored.
There are many places to go, many places to be, like on top of a mountain or deep under the sea.
Though he made up lots of things, like Thing One and Thing Two, his words still live on and they are truer than true.
To leave you with a message from this poem, so it’s not misunderstood, I’ll let the rhymer speak for himself when he said “fun is good”.
So Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss! You are a constant inspiration. You have shaped all us here beyond your wildest imagination. Where would we be without your phonics to get us reading and your characters to spark our imaginations? Thank you for all that you have done for us!
