It’s Valentine’s Day, so write an ode to someone or something you love. Bonus points for poetry!
Today is V-Day. Something I still haven’t found the logic behind to. I guess it’s just me. Anyway, today V-Day, tomorrow B-Day. That’s right, it’s my father’s 57th birthday tomorrow, and here’s a poem I wrote for him. Enjoy!
A personality of impressive value
A man with resolute virtues
A man with a walk that brings shame
To the walk of John Wayne
A man in all senses rational
Logical, humble and intelligent
Words that are rich; voice that’s resonant
The man’s capable of putting a halt to any argument
The man’s eyes are full of love
Calmer than a sea; peaceful than a dove
The man’s smile is full and wide
But the man’s biggest pride
Is his impressive beard
A beard money can’t buy
It boasts experience and a character of high
A true gentleman today
A true gentleman tomorrow
May his mighty soul never falter
I’m proud to have this affable man as my father!
Happy 57th, dad!
