Thank You Maurice

I know I've posted this piece before, but I wanted to do so again in memory of Maurice Sendak, who passed away today.

Thank you Maurice:

for chicken soup with rice
and alligators all around
for boys named Pierre who said "No!"
and night kitchen magic
for wild things
and terribly wonderful monsters
for your brutal honesty
to kids and adults alike

You have influenced my life and work in so many ways.
You will be missed.
