HAPPY FATHER’S DAY

HAPPY FATHER’S DAY

‘IN DADDY’S ARMS’

In daddy’s arms I am tall & close to the sun & warm

in daddy’s arms

in daddy’s arms I can see over the fence out back

I can touch the bottom leaves of the big magnolia tree

in cousin Sulkie’s yard

in daddy’s arms

in my daddy’s arms the moon is close, closer at

night time when I can almost touch it when it grins back at me from the wide twinkling skies

in daddy’s arms I am tall

taller than Benny & my friends Ade & George

taller than Uncle Billy & best of all

I am eye-ball-even-steven with my big brother Jamal

in my daddy’s arms I am strong & dark like him & laughing happier than the circus clowns with red painted grins

when daddy spins me round & round

& when the whole world is crazy upside down

I am big and strong & proud like him

in daddy’s arms

my daddy

‘MY GRANDDADDY IS MY DADDY TOO’

Nobody has a granddaddy like my granddaddy.

Nobody’s granddaddy is named Douglas Jasper Blue.

Nobody’s grandfather has smoked a pipe for fifty years

And always has tobacco to chew.

Nobody else’s big daddy can carve whistles out of wood.

Nobody else’s grandfather has feet almost two feet long.

Only my grandpa can catch fifteen fish in a day.

And he makes up his very own silly songs.

Nobody has a granddaddy like my granddaddy.

I’m so lucky that he’s my one and only Daddy.

— Dinah Johnson
