Joe The Poet - Poem by Francis Duggan

It has been awhile now since Joe was in his prime
Some four decades of years that is going back in time
To be local poet laureate his claim to renown
The best of the better known poets of the town
He has been penning poetry for some fifty years
His poems full of human feelings joy, laughter and tears
In senryu, haiku, free verse and rhyme he does write
And at local poetry evenings his poems he recite
Seven times a grandfather this honourable man
For fifty years married to his soulmate Lee Ann
Devoted to him the great love of his life
He says than her one could not wish for a better wife
On his birthday in June he will be seventy three
The local poet laureate and prince of poetry.
