One -koo, two -koo, low -koo, haiku

Theodor Geisel, March 2, 1904 — Sept. 24, 1991

Theodor Geisel
We knew him well — not a moose
Our pal Dr. Seuss

Neither goose, caboose
Nor mango juice — books never
Called a rhyming truce

The Cat in the Hat,
Green Eggs & Ham — ate them up
Like hot toast and jam

He wrote with delight
And that was just half — wrote so
We would learn and laugh

Wordplay was worthy
Made kids see — lesson lives on
For big kids like me

With words and rhymes what
That man could do! But never,
I think, in haiku
