Happy Birthday, Dr. Seuss!

Happy Birthday, Dr. Seuss!



Happy Birthday, Ted Geisel of Mulberry Street!

All your prose thrills my ears with each tongue-twisting feat

With fantastical creatures, syllabical twerks - 

Inspirational tales with life-messaging perks!

But forgive me one sound you won't hear in my voice - 

I just cannot pronounce your last name to be "zoise."

Through your books I have conquered some hard words like Thwerl,

Then there's Obsk, and there's Humpf, and then Thnad - but the curl

Of my tongue or my brain will not budge! It's no use!

I will love you forever!  (And still call you Seuss.)
