I realize, dear readers, that a long time has passed since my last blog post. I heartily apologize for neglecting you. The past year has been quite eventful! As you know, making the world’s communication clear and creative is a full-time job, and I have been enjoying working with my clients to do just that. But work is not the only thing that has kept me busy! My family moved (twice), moving Graceful Grammarian headquarters along with us. We have organized and reorganized the new office, and it is coming along very nicely! Now, for the most exciting news: in November, we welcomed Junior Grammarian #2, our son Ruairi Brian!
And so, as I prepared for my first foray back into the blogosphere since these momentous events, I asked my Junior Grammarians, Seamus and Ruairi, which topic I should tackle. They advised that I pen a poem in honor of one of their favorite writers, Dr. Seuss, on the occasion of his birthday. Please enjoy this octet, inspired by my own Thing 1 and Thing 2!
We got them to sit on a chair
Once each had eaten like a bear.
Holding their Things 1 and 2
With shirts of red and hair of blue,
Logue brothers love to laugh and play
And learn and grow more every day.
They thank you, Dr. Seuss, for making
Learning language a fun undertaking!
Happy Dr. Seuss’s birthday, from Logue Brother 1 and Logue Brother 2!
