Fatherís Day


Trying to think up what to draw,

On a card for Fatherís Day,

Putt... putt...Bang! 

 You could hear the olí John Deere fire up,

From over a mile away!

 

I was a ten year old prisoner,

On a perfect summer day.

Putt... putt...Bang! 

Trapped there in a classroom,

While my Dad  was cutting hay!

 

I donít suppose that card survived,

But in my mindís eye itís still clear.

Putt... putt...Bang!

Itís my stick-man Dad,

Cutting hay with the olí John Deere

PS;  A cowboy poetry book  from Country Feeds in Barriere makes a great Fatherís Day gift!
