Oh, The Places Youll Go! by Dr. Seuss

Once upon a time,
I called a friend of mine,
Asked him hesitatingly
I want to read him a poem,
If with him, its fine!

He tells me why not,
Go on, go on!
Ill listen to you until my
Energy is gone!

Exuberent I was, As I began
But with excitement came
The fright!
What if I start stuttering?
What if I dont do it right?
What if I dont do my best?
What if I shake,
the whole day and night!!

But once he put all
his attention on me.
I recited the poem,
As a human and not a zombie.

He listened to me first,
With full concentration and trust,
His laughter prevented me to slump,
And my nervousness started to rust!

On and on I went,
And stopped not until it was done.
He says I made him emotional,
He hasnt listened such recital,
No! from none.

Oh! The jump I jumped!
When the smile he smiled!
Oh!The paradise then I got!
When the laugh he laughed!

No other day in
The history of history, had been like this
When he tells me I see
A panoramic future with you, Miss!

Oh such perennial felicity!
As felicity can be!
Oh! The places I went!
Oh! The places Ill go with him and see!!

Next day he calls and tells me
He cant wait anymore!
I ask him if hes okay?
If his favorite team didnt well score?

He says he wants me
to read the poem again
That he couldnt stop smiling
Be it highway or on the lane!

I remind him that I
Just yesterday, read the poem
But he wont listen
Going on saying Please after my name.

And that was the day my friends!
The day I got to know that
Archit is naughtier than naughty
More than Archit Jr. whos yet to come on this planet!

So I say goodbye Folks,
This is how the story goes
Ill go, read him next poems
until he makes me speechless with a rose!

Previous Review:

One must read Oh, The places Youll Go, I was in computer lab and had to do some programs, we were not allowed to do anything else except programming. But when the teacher was out of sight, I opened Oh, The places youll go and at that very moment, I tell you Id been to so many places. I mentally hugged myself again and again and felt happy to come across such art.

PS : In the new review, that patient friend spoken about is my husband. <3

Short stories offer a wealth of teaching opportunities for students of all ages. For high school students in particular, short stories provide a platform for teaching about both the English language and life itself. In his short story, What the Sky Sees, McGregor tells the tale of a male teen who causes a terrifying accident, then tries to live with the aftermath. McGregor reimagined the story a decade later, writing In Winter the Sky — the same story, but from a female perspective. This is a unique approach to storytelling that can offer many lessons in voice, character, and gender for student writers. When read side-by-side, students can compare and contrast the two perspectives.
