His daughter needed a poet,

To read and then to quote…

Her Dad asked me if I could be

Inspiration for a poem she wrote.

Knowing I had “too much color”,

I made it my business to clear….

Pictures and such he’s think too much

For young eyes and her ear.

Holding my breath tonight,

My relief is the Dad who asked….

Did it go well–was I a good sell–

Did I succeed in my task?

–Jonathan Caswell, Poet
