Since I was a girl and could read on the spot
Dr. Seuss made me smile and think quite a lot
He’s funny, he’s happy, he’s silly, and smart
He thinks everyone has something to offer – like art
The trees give us air, kids thrive on esteem
His heart is to help us all out it would seem
“Be Youer than you, no one else will do”
Take for example Thing 1 and Thing 2
Be kinder than kind, smile wider than wide
Why someone may need that smile to survive
Would it not be so great to live life fully alive?
Whether green eggs & ham or the places you’ll go
Imagination just has no limits – oh no!
A red fish or blue fish a fox in his socks
A cat in a hat who kept toys in a box
You see Seuss had it right from the start it is true
There’s only one life you can live so please do!
