Backpacking Dad Tries Poetry03/25/2008
Over at At Home Dad, a dad safe zone, some of us wrote some poems for our kids.
If you happen to visit the site and find the poem thread, please don’t burn any of us. It’s a pretty personal site for some of us, and that thread in particular took some guts to post on.
But because I like the one I wrote for Erin I’ve decided to share it here:
Please don’t bite me
Don’t pull my hair
There is no candy in my ear
Please don’t hit me
Don’t poke my eye
There is no candy in my nose
Please don’t pinch me
Don’t pull my lips
There is no candy down my throat
I will kiss you
I need a hug
Ah, so that’s how you get so close.
