Happy Birthday Shel Silverstein

It’s amazing the difference
A bit of sky can make.
~Where the Sidewalk Ends

She drank from a bottle called DRINK ME
And she grew so tall,
She ate from a plate called TASTE ME
And down she shrank so small.
And so she changed, while other folks
Never tried nothin’ at all.
~Where the Sidewalk Ends

Underneath my outside face
There’s a face that none can see.
A little less smiley,
A little less sure,
But a whole lot more like me.
~Every Thing On It

Although I cannot see your face
As you flip these poems awhile,
Somewhere from some far-off place
I hear you laughing--and I smile.
~Every Thing On It
