Happy Father's Day

"Don't do that!
You'll hurt yourself."
Is a mother's cry.
Father's are for saying
"Go ahead.
Let them try."


(From my 1981 book of poems.)

HAPPY FATHER'S DAY TO MY SPOUSE, MY SON, MY SON-IN-LAW, MY BROTHER, MY BROTHER-IN-LAW. I ALWAYS MISS MY OWN FATHER, BUT REJOICE IN THE BITS OF HIM I SEE IN ALL YOUR FATHERING.

David Needs A Limerick

Happy Birthday to David we shout,
The father of each Russell Sprout.
You say he is missing
Of course -- he’s gone fishin’
We are sure Tikka helped him sneak out.

Happy Birthday to you today too David!
