Father-Daughter Dancing

Father-Daughter Dancing Fort Bragg Father Daughter Ball gives Families...

she is fire-glow shine
of new-minted pennies…
morning playfulness
of two-month colts…
anger-lightning flashes
then repentant tears
upon his  shoulder…

touchstone for her days
he sings baritone ballads
of Broadway show tunes…
with movie star good looks
he plays hero and mentor
for the dramas of her life.

  1. I love the way you play with language in this poem…the “fire-glow shine of new minted pennies…” what lovely lines, and what a beautiful way to express the relationship between father and daughter… Thank you!

  2. Like this stanza a lot:
    “touchstone for her days
    he sings baritone ballads
    of Broadway show tunes…
    with movie star good looks
    he plays hero and mentor
    for the dramas of her life.”

Let's talk...
