#1. June 16, 2010
This year the holiday season dubbed “Dads & Grads” is particularly special because we are celebrating the graduations of both our kids: one from high school and one from college. And to be celebrating Father’s Day with both my dad and my hubby is just icing on the cake! I am so proud of my kids, and so grateful for our many blessings.
See ya on the Net,

Free for personal or non-commercial use, poet Nicholas Gordon shares his poems online as well as for use in homemade Father’s Day cards. Gordon is a prolific poet, and his collection is the largest of today’s picks. “You are our knight in shining armor, / Pilgrim of our plea, / The Atlas for our wounded world, / Our rescuer at sea.”
Poemsource: Father Poems
“I love you, Dad, and want you to know / I feel your love wherever I go. / Whenever I’ve problems, you’re there to assist / The ways you have helped me would make quite a list.” I was already a fan of poets Karl and Joanna Fuchs, so I was happy to see their names again when searching for Father’s Day poems. The married duo write all the poems at Poem Source, and no commercial usage is allowed. Although in some cases they do allow a single poem to be published on a personal website, please read their usage guidelines carefully, because I can’t cover them adequately in this limited space.
