Dr Seuss

We missed the birthday celebration for Dr Seuss the other day. Mom didn't have it on the calendar. We like his books because of the silly rhymes. 
So In honor of Dr Seuss, we asked Mom to write a silly rhyming poem for us to post. Here's what she came up with and remember, we love her but she's no Dr Seuss.


What makes you happy?
A puppy that's yappy?

A tiny grey kitten?

A wooly red mitten?

A soft summer shower?

A peach tree in flower?

 A spin on a bike?

A long nature hike?

 A nap by the fire?
 A breezy kite flyer?

A fluffy white cloud?

 Playing music real loud?


No answer is wrong.
We each sing our own song.

The best thing for me
 A warm head on my knee.

With soft liquid eyes

So gentle and wise.

 A dog's love is the best.


You can keep all the rest.

Happy birthday Dr Seuss.
