What should we do today?
Could we read, run or play?
Do I even need to say?
Itâ€™s Read Across America Day!
Havenâ€™t you heard?
Itâ€™s all about the word.
We have a need to read, to help our brainâ€™s exceed and lead. Agreed?
Proceed – let your mind be freed. Just pick a book and take a look.
Imagination. An educational donation of narration elation.
Because today is Dr. Seussâ€™ birthday, weâ€™ll have a celebration.
Iâ€™ll cook up a dinner in honor of the award winner.
Green Eggs and Ham? You do not like them? Damn.
One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish. Wouldnâ€™t that be an awkward dish?
A Grinch, Yertle, the Lorax and Horton. The Cat in the Hat or Hop on Pop.
Weâ€™re just getting started. Did you really think Iâ€™d stop?
Oh, The Places Youâ€™ll Go! But only if youâ€™re in the know.
Weâ€™re off for now. The Hungry Caterpillar awaits.
Followed by an evening full of other literary dates.
My dear Dr. Seuss: Happy Birthday!
And to the rest: Itâ€™s Read Across America Day!
