Roaring his terrible roars

by nike, May 8, 2012

Maurice Sendak has passed away.

Let the rumpus start.

May he rest not in peace, but in some wild, affectionate place, where the monsters are his friends and he is their king.

May he continue to roar his terrible roars

and gnash his terrible teeth

and roll his terrible eyes

and show his terrible claws.

The world has eaten him up, it loved him so.

He has gone into the night of his very own room;

I hope his supper is waiting for him

and that it still hot.


  • What a lovely tribute, Nike. :) Neen
