What Are Fathers Made Of? - Poem by Diane Wright

Little boys are made of snails and puppy dog tails
But fathers are made of concern and love
Ready to give aid when the going is rough
Or be a throwing partner with a baseball and glove.

Fathers are made of compassion too
Shown in a different way from Mom’s pure heart
She is emotional and may cry a lot
Dad just listens with wisdom to impart.

Yes, wisdom that comes from ages ago
Lived through his father and generations before
Stories he relates are sure to fix what ails
Pulling the right story from his wisdom in store.

Fathers are strong to stand in defense of family
With God, strength imparted to withstand the fight
Likened to a mighty ship with God at the helm
Strife is overcome and at the end, there is light.

“Daddy’s little girl” is sugar and spice to small ears
Special to Dad in tomboyish pranks, frills or lace
Feminine wiles displayed to win over Daddy’s heart
Tilting her head with clown-like expressions on her face.

Fathers are the light of our lives
Along with God, shining the way in the darkest of nights
Helping to ready a small life who, too, will be called
To be a beacon of light to their own before flight.

    A lovely explanation of what a Father is. I enjoyed the read. Nice. Can I say on the last stanza, I would have put ' in the darkest night' which would flow better with ' to their own before flight'. Just a thought! ! ! Not a criticism! Love Ernestine XXX (Report) Reply
