Wild Thing

Standard

Today’s fabulously elaborate animated Google Doodle pays tribute to beloved children’s author Maurice Sendak, who died last year. Rotating stage-layers include some of the main characters of Sendaks’ illustrations from Where The Wild Things Are, In The Night Kitchen, and others. Sendak lived with his partner, Dr. Eugene Glynn, for 50 years. Not featured: scenes from one of my personal favorites, Chicken Soup With Rice; read to me often as a kid by my own Jewish grandmother.

In June I saw a charming group
Of roses all begin to droop
I pepped them up with chicken soup!
Sprinkle once, sprinkle twice
Sprinkle chicken soup with rice.

    I am trying to tell you that I am bonded to you, and committed. Without you, my days are dark, and barely worth living. I love you.
