 Contemporary poetry by Dan Donlan


No i did not miss the dinner
Not even chastised for being late
Wife called and took the blame
Nala rushed out and greeted me
She is a giant of a dog and so loving
Put her paws over my shoulders
And rained me with kisses
Nala is a Leonberger so gentle
In the war effort Leonbergers
Carried the ammunition carts were workers
Hard to envision but here is what was cute
Somehow dressed in a Hugh white shirt
My son's picture, "Daddy loves Nala"
Danny wore a shirt with Nala's Picture
Those who love dogs well appreciate this love
The kids one by one greeted me at the door
Brent studying in Rome was in Croatia.
He is using his college days to tour the world
Ryan had his new girlfriend with him Grace
She is a Identical twin and they are inseparable
That is Ryan and Grace
Both well sit side by side in Graduation
Ryan is not as excited about college
Grace well be going to a local college near Kelsey
They too are becoming friends
The Father's day card was neither dollar store
or Walmart it like the dinner homemade
Get this they all said they loved me because
I am so loving and a gentle man
Had to look in mirror to see if I was at the right house
