Honor Your Father


Oh, please honor your father,
on this Father's Day.
Try treating him with
respect in every way.
Plan a special activity
that includes the
entire family such as
a picnic, or a family
barbecue.
It's up to your father
to choose.
Take him out to his
favorite ball game
at home or at the
stadium.
But whatever you
decide to do, remember
to celebrate Father's Day
by having a good time.

Poem of the Day

poet Percy Bysshe Shelley

We are as clouds that veil the midnight moon;
How restlessly they speed, and gleam, and quiver,
Streaking the darkness radiantly!--yet soon
