Father's Day Poems
Father's Day is a special day for
everyone! We use this day to honor
our fathers all over the world! We
celebrate this holiday on the third
Sunday in June. A woman named Sonora
Smart Dodd from Spokane, Washington,
thought of the idea for Father's Day
while listening to a Mother's Day
sermon in 1909. Her father, Henry
Jackson Smart, had raised Sonora
after her mother died and she wanted
him to know how special he was to
her. Her father was born in June, so
she chose that month to celebrate
the new holiday!
I remember a gift I received from my
father on a Father's Day! I had
completely forgotten about it. And
Father had sent a card with this
beautiful poem by Robert Frost
inside to jog my memory. It remains
with me today as a Father's Day
Stopping By Woods On A Snowy Evening
Poem lyrics of Stopping By Woods On
A Snowy Evening by Robert Frost.
Whose woods these are I think I
His house is in the village, though;
He will not see me stopping here
To watch his woods fill up with
My little horse must think it's
To stop without a farmhouse near
Between the woods and frozen lake
The darkest evening of the year.
He gives his harness bells a shake
To ask if there's some mistake.
The only other sound's the sweep
Of easy wind and downy flake.
The woods are lovely, dark, and
But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep,
And miles to go before I sleep.
