This original poem from Audrey Waters- Take It and Teach© , picks up where the story of the Lorax leaves off. This poem provides the perspective of the Onceler, now that he realizes what he has done. He wishes that he had valued the Truffula forest and regrets cutting down all the trees. He remembers that he still has one single truffula seed, and decides to plant it himself and harvest seeds, instead of trees.
The poem has forty lines and is presented with colour graphics on each page, to allow for printing and using as a poster. It would provide a starting point for all Earth Day activities in primary grades. This poem is also linked to another product in my store, The Onceler Learns a Lesson, a play for students.
