‘Too Many Daves’
By Dr. Seuss
“Did I ever tell you that Mrs. McCave
Had twenty-three sons and she named them all Dave?
Well, she did. And that wasn’t a smart thing to do.
You see, when she wants one and calls out, “Yoo-Hoo!
Come into the house, Dave!” she doesn’t get one.
All twenty-three Daves of hers come on the run…”
You can read the complete poem here. Dr. Seuss otherwise known as Theodor Geisel was born on this day in 1904, you can read more of his work through Surrey Libraries.
Want more? Take a look at our Words in Focus book, full of great work by Surrey Poets or come along to Farnham Library on the 8th March for a night of T. S. Eliot poetry.
