Father & Son - Poem by David Lewis Paget

There is the family photograph
That is your father’s face,
There is your father’s father
Grey-gathering years apace;
The son, bright-eyed in the morning,
The father, lined and drawn,
The son became the father
On the day that you were born.

We’ve all set out on the highway
Our fathers wished us well,
The sons became the fathers
In the same distinctive spell;
The road of all beginnings
Is all there is to lend,
But many a twist, and many a turn
Has marred us at the end.

He was my father’s father,
I am my father’s son,
We’ve travelled as far, and farther
Than our father’s years have run;
The twists and turns of fortune
Mean nothing, lost or won,
But the love of a father’s father,
And the love of a father’s son.

3 September 1977

    A wonderful poem. Would you read my poem 'Faded Photographs' which tries to express the same sentiments about parents (but not as well yours I might add) (Report) Reply

    An enjoyable poem on a very unusual and special theme. I particularly like the rhythmic style and the way it ended. (Report) Reply
