Belated happy 101st to Dr. Seuss

Dr. Seuss would have been 101 last Wednesday. I found this via a friend's journal; it's lovely and IMHO well worth reading in its entirety:

I read them when young, and I read them today, 
For Seussian books can be read many ways.

I read them to learn about whimsy and wist.
I read to explore the landscapes cubist.

I read them on the phone to friends who are troubled
I read when I'm happy, and my joy is then doubled.

And if someday I'm blessed with some daughters or sons,
I'll know what do to: Buy Seuss books by the tons!
