Dad And Me - Poem by Lenore Lee

Inside our house you'll find crannies and nooks.
Crevices and cracks and fissures and books!
Books under the bed and on the floor,
Books around the table and beside the door,
Books on the bookshelf and surrounding it,
Books all over the house, every single bit!
Not a one of these books are non-fiction,
Different worlds are their depiction.
Fictional, sci-fi, dark and fantasy,
Horror and happy, more books for me!
Books belonging to my father,
Or belonging to me as I rather.
My father and I in bookworm heaven,
Until mum cleans up around half past seven.
She throws the books in a huff,
Says it's a mess and to clean it up!
Well dad and I try to clean,
But on the work we quickly wean
And in one of the larger nooks
You'll find dad and me reading our books.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

This poem is dedicated to my dad, the man who would read me to sleep as a child and bought me my first book.

    A great tribute to an aspect of the relationship you and your Dad have. To share such a learned common interest is a treasure and a gift for life the love of reading and knowledge that he has so graciously bestowed. (Report) Reply
