The Father's Day


Hail, hail, hail this day,
wave like angles
wings that close the sky,
the drifter of many
faces hover in dame of yesteryears;
a glorious recapitulation
of the first day's best dress in the
groom of today

all comes to joyous echo,
span like spam eaten
thou not consumed, a thirst of sweet
memories of a laughter fun
of the heart that sake the moment
of hello but not a goodbye

tricks and thrill surround
the circle of gummed,
like cherubim of gorgeous playing
in the sun, a Sunday of the man
of the Hour... Happy Father's Day

Poem of the Day

poet John Clare

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
