    My daughter is a huge Bruce Larkin fan. She is always laughing at the silly poems you create. I have also benefited from A Giant Hopes for Visitors poem when it comes to cleaning time :) Keep them coming!

    I asked you to keep posting and you were kind enough to do so. My students say you really are the world's funniest poet. Please keep posting. I could use one poem for each school day.

Best Poem of Bruce Larkin

The Night Before School Starts

‘Twas the night before school starts,
And all through the city,
Parents were filled with joy.
They were downright giddy.

Children huddled in beds,
Many shed a tear.
Thoughts of returning to school
Filled them with fear.

All around the city,
Parents said what they love to say;
"Better get to bed now.
Tomorrow's a school day! "

Read Across America

He wrote the 'Cat in the Hat'
And so many other great books.
His fans have grown up to be
Astronauts, teachers, dancers, and cooks.

He used his wit and rhymes
To describe triumphs and trials,
And along the way made
Millions of giggles and smiles.
