Today is the best, best kind of day.
A day to laugh, giggle, snort, and play.
For years we have gathered around the books we know.
And imagined “Oh The Places You’ll Go.”
We’ve snickered as we tried to “Hop on Pop.”
And counted “Ten Apples Up On Top.”
We laughed as we loved our “Green Eggs and Ham.”
And memorized every line of the great Sam I Am.
We learned about “The Lorax,” “Zanzibar Buck Buck McFate,” and “Cindy Lou Who.”
Chortled at the antics of “The Cat In The Hat” and “Thing One and Thing Two.”
Today is the birthday of Dr. Seuss, his genius and his silly, non-sensical made-up words.
For without him we would have never known the Floob-Boober-Bab-Boober-Bubs and the Biffer-Baum Birds.
“You’ll get mixed up, of course, as you already know. You’ll get mixed up with many strange birds as you go. So be sure when you step. Step with care and great tact and remember that Life’s a Great Balancing Act. Just never forget to be dexterous and deft. And never mix up your right foot with your left.”
― Dr. Seuss, Oh, The Places You’ll Go
