Shel Silverstein died in 1999 at the age of 68, but his writing, poetry and drawings will be around for hopefully a very long time to come. Earlier this month, his family published Everything On It, a posthumous work of dozens and dozens of unpublished poems and illustrations, including the poem above, “Happy Birthday”.
You can pick up Everything On It here on Amazon or in a real-life book store
Lovers always have poems. Boyfriends write poems to girlfriends and girlfriends write poems for boyfriends and boyfriends write poems to boyfriends. But until now, no one writes good love poems for virgins. And as an added bonus, it will in no way elicit laughs from your friends when it’s sitting on your bookshelf. They’ll think it’s super cool, I promise.
