    I love you his poems! He's Awesome! I read almost all of his poem books. I'm his #1 fan.

    I agree. My brother, dad and I used to buy his books for my moms birthday, which is the day after Christmas, and she has memorized so many of his poems! I recently found one we hadn't seen before, and it's waiting all wrapped up for her birthday!

Best Poem of Shel Silverstein

Hug O'War

I will not play at tug o' war.
I'd rather play at hug o' war,
Where everyone hugs
Instead of tugs,
Where everyone giggles
And rolls on the rug,
Where everyone kisses,
And everyone grins,
And everyone cuddles,
And everyone wins.

A Boy Named Sue

Well, my daddy left home when I was three,
and he didn't leave much to Ma and me,
just this old guitar and a bottle of booze.
Now I don't blame him because he run and hid,
but the meanest thing that he ever did was
before he left he went and named me Sue.

Well, he must have thought it was quite a joke,
and it got lots of laughs from a lot of folks,
