    Damn. I remember going to see him when I was in 3rd grade. Ebaneezer Sneezer's Ice Cream Store (I think that's right) is one of those poems that drew me into liking him a lot when I was little. It was in Where the sidewalk ends. I can think of the other one I used to have of his. It had a tree on the front. Damn good poet. Robert Frost (Another I grew up on) has got me as a fav though.

    the giving tree has meant more to my life than alot of things.


    "cut down my trunk and make a boat," said the tree.
    "then you can sail away and be happy."

    The Missing Piece meets the Big O is a masterpiece. My dad once picked him up when he was hitchhiking. Apparently, he didn't talk much.
