Crying Once, Crying Twice

Chicken Soup With Rice

Chicken Soup With Rice

On May 8th
Maurice went away
to wild lands
where children play
in kitchens where
they bake all day.
Crying once,
crying twice
chicken soup
with rice.

Maurice Sendak has passed away.

I loved him best for “Chicken Soup With Rice” and “In The Night Kitchen,” the latter was once in trouble for having a little naked boy run around in a couple panels.
