My father


I know my father
I have seen him.
I have not seen
My fathers father
I know him not
It does not mean.

My father was a holy man
And he always
Sued to tell
The race be begin.

What race I thought
I would ask
I had not the
courage to the task.

My father was a loving one
As told by my son
My father was not there
As he born.

My love like the spectator ydly sits
Beholding me that all the pageants play,
Disguysing diversly my troubled wits.
