sunday. a poem for father's day

my father is a poet, so this father's day i chose to write him a poem of his own.

My Father Is

My father is a poet,
he writes of things he's known.
My father is a town crier,
always loud and on the go.

My father is a performer, 
always drawing in a crowd.
My father is an optimist,
it takes a lot to get him down.

My father is a character,
he knows how to make me smile.
My father is a funnyman,
well, he's funny for a while...

My father is a songbird,
always whistling a tune.
My father is a goofball,
but hey, I'm a goofball too!

  1. Love this poem Rhi. Looks like you inherited the poetic gene from Dad. There had to be some pay off after getting his fingers and toes right? ;)
