Seuss and Tolkien got together to write a pledge to becoming better listeners.
This is what they came up with:
I would listen in a box, and I would listen to a fox. I could listen to a hobbit, I will listen ’til you stop it. I would listen in a house, and I would listen to a mouse. I will listen on the train, and I will listen in the rain. I love to listen, Sam Gamgee, I‘m listening right where I be.*
(above: this is just a picture of me being ridiculous. It has nothing to do with anything.)
*You don’t have to memorize this to pass any test.
