Thank you, Dr. Seuss, for so many things. Happy fifteenth of May!

On the fifteenth of May, in the Jungle of Nool, In the heat of the day, in the cool of the pool, He was splashing. . . enjoying the jungle’s great joys. . . When Horton the elephant heard a small noise. So Horton stopped splashing. He looked toward the sound. “That’s funny,” thought Horton. “There’s no one around.” Then he heard it again! Just a very faint yelp. As if some tiny person were calling for help. “I’ll help you,” said Horton. “But who are you? Where?” He looked and he looked. He could see nothing there. . .

(From Horton Hears a Who!)
