May's End
Saturday May 31st 2008

One more memorial Day shot--same boy
with his father reading Dr Seuss's
Fox in Socks, which may make
him squirm and turn
and grab the flag
that's near the bag
where puppies wag
their curly tails
when they tip over colored pails
ended here, is my nonsense tale!
You can not end it
No you can't..
you must rave and rant
and never rest till you are done
with all the words
that are so fun.
And this of course. will never be
so talk you will, eternally...
Fox in Socks is a children's book by Dr. Seuss,
first published in 1965. It features
two main characters, the Fox and
Mr. Knox, who converse almost entirely
in densely rhyming tongue-twisters.
The book in some ways bears a
resemblance to Green Eggs and Ham,
another book by Dr. Seuss. Both
stories contain two main characters:
one who is stubborn and wants to
be left alone; the other, a persistent
and sometimes annoying opposite

What a wonderful commentary on life. We must all be persistent if we believe in what we are doing.

I don't have it in my makeup to sell my scattering of things---someone would have to do all that for me and since that hasn't happened yet, I am not too optimistic there (smile)---I appreciate your comments, as it makes me 'feel good' about things and what could be a better thing to do for someone else. Thanks. EJM

I liked your rhyme
Although in time
But before I go to bed
It will be out of my head
The picture, however,
Will be there forever
A moment captured in time
I think your work is sublime!

Oh Theodore, how have you been? We missed you at the ice cream social and had to sit with the Von Normorton family and their 11 children. EJM
