For this week’s poem a simple quiz
Do you know who Mister Geisel is?
I’ll give you some clues, although I doubt
You won’t be able to figure it out
He was born yesterday a long time ago
And when he died it was a great blow
Anapestic tetrameter is what he did
I loved his stuff when I was a kid
He counted fish and told me their colors
His imagination was like no others
Speaking of colors, he considered green
A reasonable color for eggs to be seen
His elephant had really good ears
Surely you know what the pachyderm hears?
An impish feline in a tall chapeau
By now I think you have to know
But I will offer one more clue
Then I promise we will be through
His Christmas story included a Grinch
See, I told you this quiz would be a cinch
Happy Birthday one day late
To Dr. Seuss. I think you were great.
