There are many things that make me glad,
Like the hearty laughter of a little lad.
The frolicking awkwardness of a puppy at play,
And the glow of sunshine at the start of the day.

To see grass and flowers covered with dew,
Mountainous white clouds in a sky of blue,
A walk on a pillow of new fallen snow,
Soft falling rain that makes flowers grow.

For my children to grow strong and tall,
The good times past that I recall,
Sitting quietly alone remembering past joys,
And "Hi Granddaddy" from three fine boys.

Glimpses of your Dad help explain how his son turned into such a fine human being. *S* This is lovely... immense enjoyment in life's simple pleasures... thanks for sharing this with us, Toe!!

Lovely poem from a lovely man. He must have been a fine and caring person.
So lovely you have these poems to pass on to others and cherish for yourself.
Thanks for sharing the gem with us..:..

This is why I enjoy tangling with you. Not because you're a worthless, wretched old man who should be locked away but because your're a good man with a heart of gold who just acts like a worthless, wretched old man who should be locked away. Wonderful sentiments, friend Toe.
