For My Father


by Carmen H Gray

Explorations of resplendent nature

Lizards, locusts, asps and toads

The perfect design of every creature

In the trees and along the roads

All of my how’s and why’s with answers never met

Instead rejoined by you

With more curious speculations that would beget

A continual craving of learning

Through out my life

Your responses returning

To keep me suspended

That I may seek evermore

Beyond what is first comprehended
