My Poem of the Day


You are my forever dad©

You may not have planted the seed that made me

But you were the man who reared me

You taught me right from wrong

And all that I needed to know to make it in this world

You taught me how to ride a bike

While you stood proudly by

You took me tobogganing on top of Blue Hill Ave

And you followed right behind me

You didn’t even laugh when I became a fixture on the biggest tree

Together, we climbed Mount Monadnock

My fondest memories were of

Our weekend state to state trips

Sometimes, by car

Sometimes, by ferry

Whichever way was fun-filled and merry

Your love is like no other

Your always so caring and forgiving

I know that there’s nothing you wouldn’t do

Not all times were with cheerful

But you sure did find a way for me to get past every bad moment

These are the things that only a dad can fix

I’m so glad that you will always be

My forever dad

My Poem of the Day


The Winters Snow©

The glistening Winter snow

Falls swiftly from the cold winter sky

Each flake melts like butter into another

Gathering in masses like people in a crowd

They fight for a spot just the same

As they fall their beauty grows

Their brightness lightens the gloom that precedes them

Somehow we put aside their inconvenience

As their beauty is slightly overwhelming

It’s only once the dirt starts to

discolor them that we lose

Our appreciation for what they brought us

Now among the pile of soiled and hardened snow that has lost its glistening glow

The flakes lay lifeless as they’ve lost their external beauty

The Winter snow comes in phases

And just like people it has its beginning and its end

Till it next has its season
