Ode to Dr. Seuss (reposting)

He went by Doctor -
His real name was Ted.
His books are perfect
When read before bed.

He introduced us 
To Green Eggs and Ham,
A hat wearing cat,
That pushy guy, Sam.

With hapless Horton
We heard a faint Who.
He allowed us to ponder
If I Ran the Zoo.

He taught us to "moo"
Like ol' Mr. Brown.
He never failed to 
Turn frowns up-side-down.

His books make us think.
His books make us laugh.
His amazing work
Is his best epitaph.

Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss!
