Poems for and about fathers


by Ron Tranmer

I’ve been told that I am thoughtful,
that my feet are on the ground.
Some say that I am likeable
and fun to be around.

It’s been said that to my principals
I stand firm and true.
That I’m dependable and honest
in the things I say and do.

But the single greatest compliment
that I have ever had,
Is when somebody told me,
“You remind me of your dad.”
