while joyfully reading a story to his dear Adeline.
I think she thought her Daddy had a screw loose,
with the way he read to her, the words of Dr. Seuss.
She was intrigued, she reached and she reached,
and grabbed the book and bit into it like a peach.
Then she took over reading the book to her Dad,
and told him that page 12 said "gurble-dy-gad"
She handed the book back and posed for the camera,
that Mommy had been pointing in their general area.
Her attention turned back to her anxious dear father,
who jumped right back in with the zeal of a zad-ee-wather
Daddy paused for a question, so he could take a breather,
but he had no idea what a zad-ee-wather was either.
When the story was over they closed the book happy,
ending a wonderful night between Addy and her Daddy.
