Poems About Fathers

Poems about fathers:

from e. e. cummings, "my father moved through dooms of love"

from Gary L. McDowell, "Shuttlecock"

from Mark Jarman, "Descriptions of Heaven and Hell"

from Dean Rader, "Ocean Beach at Twilight: 14"

from Judy Halebsky, "My Father Remembers Blue Zebras"

from W. S. Merwin, "Yesterday"

from Chad Sweeney, "The Methodist and His Method"

from Joseph Fasano, "The Figure"

from Donald Hall, "White Apples"

from Frank Bidart, "Lament for the Makers"


I also wanted to include a poem about driving by a cemetery and honking towards a father's grave, but I can't find it. I think it's Robert Bly.....anybody??
