Ode to Dr. Seuss

March 2, 2010

Today is the birthday of Theodor Geisel (aka Dr. Seuss).  In honor of him, I'll do my very best with an ode.

Today I leave on a jet.
On to another adventure wet.

19 miles in Cook Strait
I hope the sharks don't think me bait

Weather currently has a typhoon
Which I hope is over very soon.

Tide dates set for March 7th – 13th
Then flight back home on the 15th.

Nails painted in color Summer Sea
The toes are happy as can be.

I will not eat green eggs and ham
I will not eat them Sam I am.

Instead I'll feed on Perpetuem
Which doesn't always make me think YUM.

But it is the fuel I need
To bring me lots of speed.

With so many people around the world cheering
I don't think there is need for fearing.

Friends in heart and mind
will help me through those tough binds.

Should tides and weather cooperate
We will be able to celebrate!

That's the best I got.
Dr. Seuss I am not.

    I hope you find a window in the weather. If I remember (from many years ago) the weather in Wellington can change quickly. I will think good thoughts and call out to the wind to die down.
