    Poem Commentary

    What more can I say about my dad than I still miss him and that he was a better man than I. Blessings, Whiskers.

    NO NOBLER FAME

    My Father, a brilliant man

    more brilliant than I aspire,

    My Father, a caring man

    more caring than I desire;

     

    My Father, a big man

    more stature than I can meet,

    My Father, a vital man

    would walk miles oblivious to heat;

     

    My Father, a friend to man

    always eager to lend a hand,

    My Father, an ocean man

    who loved the surf and sand;

     

    My Father, a happy man

    his smile not the least of his charms;

    My Father, a back-woodsman

    schooled in forestry & reared on farms,

     

    My Father, a Christian man

    served his Lord in act and deed,

    My Father, a well read man

    would sit hours with book and read;

     

    My Father, who I'd hug and kiss

    whatever my age without shame,

    "My Father"...who I miss so much;

    could be given no nobler fame.

    Sounds like you miss him from your poem that is, im sorry,, great poem.. One thing you know.. Hes at peace hes were you can't see but if you hold Jesus at your side, you will inter kingdomes gates too, and there you will be reunighted in peace.. just think of how at peace he is think of him as being home, for our time here is not home its a gerny.. I wish you well with your poems, its a great way to express yourself.. and let them feelings flow.. Nicely written and loved your poem so..

    Poetry is finer and more philosophical than history; for poetry expresses the universal, and history only the particular.

    Aristotle (384 BC-322 BC) Greek philosopher.
