Fathers Day Poem

Are you looking for a Fathers Day poem? Well, Fathers Day is celebrated the 3rd Sunday in June and you’ll find some poems below that might be just what you’re looking for.

Fathers day is a day to honor our fathers and let them know how much we love them. Dads come in all shapes and sizes - and demeanor too. They can be tough, gentle, demanding, and understanding. Funny, loving, doting, and loving.

I hope you take the time this day or any other day of the year to let your father know how much you appreciate and love him for all he has done for you. Perhaps you can find a Fathers Day poem to inspire you.




What Makes a Dad
~ Author Unknown

God took the strength of a mountain,
The majesty of a tree,
The warmth of a summer sun,
The calm of a quiet sea,
The generous soul of nature,
The comforting arm of night,
The wisdom of the ages,
The power of the eagle's flight,
The joy of a morning in spring,
The faith of a mustard seed,
The patience of eternity,
The depth of a family need,
Then God combined these qualities,
When there was nothing more to add,
He knew His masterpiece was complete,
And so, He called it ... Dad

A FATHER MEANS...
~ Author Unknown

A Father means so many things...
A understanding heart,
A source of strength and of support
Right from the very start.
A constant readiness to help
In a kind and thoughtful way.
With encouragement and forgiveness
No matter what comes your way.
A special generosity and always affection, too
A Father means so many things
When he's a man like you...

********************

We may not shower him with praise
Nor mention his name in song,
And sometimes it seems that we forget
The joy he spreads as he goes along,
But it doesn’t mean that we don’t know
The wonderful role that he has had.
And away down deep in every heart
There’s a place that is just for Dad.....

Fathers Day Poem

To Her Father with Some Verses
~ Ann Bradstreet

Most truly honoured, and as truly dear,
If worth in me or ought I do appear,
Who can of right better demand the same
Than may your worthy self from whom it came?
The principal might yield a greater sum,
Yet handled ill, amounts but to this crumb;
My stock’s so small I know not how to pay,
My bond remains in force unto this day;
Yet for part payment take this simple mite,
Where nothing’s to be had, kings loose their right.
Such is my debt I may not say forgive,
But as I can, I’ll pay it while I live;
Such is my bond, none can discharge but I,
yet paying is not paid until I die.

Those Winter Sundays
~ Robert Hayden

Sundays too my father got up early
and put his clothes on in the blueblack cold,
then with cracked hands that ached
from labor in the weekday weather made
banked fires blaze. No one ever thanked him.

I’d wake and hear the cold splintering, breaking.
When the rooms were warm, he’d call,
and slowly I would rise and dress,
fearing the chronic angers of that house.

Speaking indifferently to him,
who had driven out the cold
and polished my good shoes as well.
What did I know, what did I know
of love’s austere and lonely offices?

My grandfather, dead long before I was born
~ Charles Reznikoff

My grandfather, dead long before I was born,
died among strangers; and all the verse he wrote
was lost -
except for what
still speaks through me
as mine.

It’s So Nice To Have a Dad Around the House
~ Helen Steiner Rice

DADS are special people
No home should be without,
For every family will agree
They're 'SO NICE TO HAVE ABOUT’ -
They are a happy mixture
Of a 'SMALL BOY' and a 'MAN'
And they're very necessary
In every 'FAMILY PLAN' -
Sometimes they're most demanding
And stern, and firm and tough
But underneath they're 'soft as silk
For this is just a 'BLUFF' -
But in any kind of trouble
Dad reaches out his hand.
And you can always count on him
To help and understand -
And while we do not praise Dad
as often as we should,
We love him and admire him,
And while that's understood,
It's only fair to emphasize
His importance and his worth -
For if there were no loving Dads
This would be a 'LOVELESS EARTH'.
