|Maurice Sendak (1928 - 2012)|
Rolled my eyes and gnashed my teeth and voiced a saddened roar
Hearing Maurice Sendak isn't with us anymore.
Although other Maxs will command the rumpus "Start!"
Losing such a gifted man has kinda broke my heart.
In an interview I heard on WBUR
Terry Gross paid tribute as I listened in my car.
Sendak had released a book about a year ago
And the things he said to her made my eyes overflow.
Maurice was then 82 and he'd just lost a friend;
Spoke about the knowledge that his life was near its end.
In the light of recent news I'd recommend that you
Take the time to listen to this brilliant interview.
