RESPONSE TO THE NEWS "Canada’s poet laureate writes one poem in two years"

He scribes one poem in just two years?
That fact alone brings me to tears,
To write a verse, and so in rhyme,
For me, takes very little time.
This past weekend, why, I did ode
A five verse poem, at friends abode,
Took me, down side of half an hour,
To pen the words which show some power.

So if you wish, don't hesitate 
My name, for this post, nominate, 
I will ascribe in rhyming form 
More poems than he who seems to dorm; 
Or by chance he has writers block, 
If so his title, should defrock.

Love you, my friend

I had to send this greeting,
The sentiments are true,
No other way to say it,
Just "Thanks, for being YOU"

A bond, it has developed,
We're closer it appears,
I thank God for this friendship
And pray it lasts for years.

You are unique, that's certain,
Like you, there is none other,
And I've no qualms in saying
"I love you, as a brother"

My Dad

For thirty years you've fathered,
But not that long for me,
You've shown me love and friendship,
And done it all for free.

I love our time together,
While riding in your truck,
With you as my dear father,
I have massed out, on luck.

The barbeques and hockey,
You're almost like my twin,
But you support Chicago,
Though Boston's gonna win.

I crave the care you give me,
It's shown in all you do,
And while it's seldom spoken,
I really do love you.

So on this day to honour
The 'pater' of our clan,
With love, I send this greeting
To my beloved 'old man'.

Happy Fathers Day
