Poetry Friday: To My Father by William Hamilton Hayne

Check out Poetry Friday at Reflections on the Teche
Happy Father's Day to my fellow fathers! Along with husband, it's the best job I have ever had.


To My Father
It matters not that Time has shed
His thawless snow upon your head,
For he maintains, with wondrous art,
Perpetual summer in your heart.
written by William Hamilton Hayne

  4. Ruth missed the attribution for the photo, but I didn't. I *heart* Wikimedia Commons!

    My dad had that "thawless snow," and is now a bit of "perpetual summer" in MY heart.
