Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss Poetry Contest

Barry Lenson

Theodor Seuss Geisel, better known as Dr. Seuss, was one of the most loved writers of children’s literature ever. His many classic books include Green Eggs and Ham, Horton Hears a Who, and the immortal Cat in the Hat.

Dr. Seuss was born on March 2, 1904, so we are celebrating his birthday today with a special blog post in his honor. Better yet, we are inviting you to write a poem in Dr. Seuss’s very unique style. Just post your poem as a comment below, so all the other readers of this blog can see how clever you are.

The only catch? You have to write a Seuss-style poem on the subject of . . . ONLINE LEARNING.

Here’s a poem that we put together to get the fun started.

Do You Like to Learn Online?

“Do you like to learn online?
Do you think it’s fun and fine?”

“Yes I think it’s fun and fine
To log on and to learn online.

Except how will I take my classes
If my hard drive burns and crashes?”

“That’s no problem,
Say it loud!

Just save your work
Up in the cloud!”

“That’s what I’ll do,
I’ll say it proud,

I’ll save my work up in the cloud.
I will not fear

Those hard drive crashes,
Just let them burn

Right down to ashes.
I will not care if my mouse dies,

Or if it totally totally fries.
So I’ll go now and work online

And yes it will be fun and fine.”
