"Analyzing humor is like dissecting a frog. Few people are interested and the frog dies of it."
Happy Birthday, E. B. White (1899-1985)

Humor can be dissected, as a frog can, but the thing dies in the process and the innards are discouraging to any but the pure scientific mind.

I would feel more optimistic about a bright future for man if he spent less time proving that he can outwit Nature and more time tasting her sweetness and respecting her seniority.

In the trees the night wind stirs, bringing the leaves to life, endowing them with speech; the electric lights illuminate the green branches from the under side, translating them into a new language.

In 1945, famed NYPL children’s librarian Anne Carroll Moore wrote E. B. White, whose Stuart Little she had just read in proofs. Don’t publish it, she said. The book “was non-affirmative, inconclusive, unfit for children, and would harm its author if published.” White thanked Moore for her comments but resolved to push forward. Once published, children’s librarians gave Stuart a tepid reception. Millions of readers, however, loved him. “Like little springboks,” children “can sail easily over the fence that separates reality from make-believe,” White said. “A fence that can throw a librarian is nothing to a child.”

BLACK OUT POEM: Sunny Days
source: “Once More to the Lake” by E. B. White
Tumblr media
Actual Poem (in case image fails to load):
Individual Shadow in the dusty field
The road was missing and the choice was to lay there in the sun
Alleys were green
The place was one of time
The illusion was indelible, unshatterable, and innocent
Authors Note: I would show you the actual blackout picture, but it doesn’t look that good so here’s just the poem. This was just for a quick English Assignment, which is why it isn’t my best work, sorry.

"The crickets sang in the grasses. They sang the song of summer's ending, a sad, monotonous song. 'Summer is over and gone,' they sang. 'Over and gone, over and gone. Summer is dying, dying."

this is how I'm declining my next invitation somewhere I don't wanna go
I must decline, for secret reasons.

📚 Charlotte’s Web by E.B. White
I read this book with my seventh graders last year for a book report. They absolutely loved it! I mean, I liked it, too, but it means more coming from a group of seventh graders. I teach in a special ed classroom, so my kids don’t necessarily love to read, but they just ate this up. Obviously, it’s a classic for a reason, but I love that it resonates just as much with this generation as it did with generations past.
