Rookie (April 12 / Philadelphia Pa.)

My Brothers Son


He wakes early to work so hard
Though today with his second son by his side
I want to work with you dad, and follow what
you do
These word's turn this cold windy day, warm and sunny
A new reason for him to work
A new reason to wake so early
To teach his son what he doe's, and why he work's so hard
With a smile, one of the reasons now stands by his side

poet Emily Jane Brontë

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born
